Online Resources & References
The categories below are organized either by source location/type (e.g., "California – Central Valley", "USEPA") or subject (e.g., "Drinking Water", "Pesticides"). Some subject areas were considered too broad and are not listed (e.g., "Stormwater" or "TMDLs"). For references to those topics, try looking under a geographical area, subject or agency/organization.
This list is oriented towards California surface water quality issues. There is very little relating to hazardous wastes, solid wastes or groundwater.
