Project: Development of Statewide Standards for Trash Monitoring Methods

Description: The Trash Amendments prohibit discharge of trash larger than 5 millimeters to state waters from stormwater systems. Currently there is no agreed-upon scientific method to monitor for trash in water and receiving stormwater channels which makes assessing permittees’ compliance and general progress on reducing trash in state waters difficult. This project will develop a suite of methods to monitor State receiving waters for trash, aligning those methods with addressable management questions. The methods selected, described, and tested must be applicable to many parts of the State, and not exclusive to a single region
