NOW AVAILABLE: 2022 California Bacteria Summit Summary Published Online

From the State Water Resources Control Board:

The purpose of this message is to share the summary of the 2022 Bacteria Summit. Last year, the California Water Boards and the California Stormwater Quality Association (CASQA) co-hosted a three-day statewide summit on bacteria from September 14 – 16, 2022, at the CalEPA building in Sacramento.

The purpose of the summit was to identify the priority technical and regulatory actions needed to recreate safely in California’s river and ocean waters, to eat shellfish safely, and the process to implement those actions. The document provides summaries and takeaways for each day of the summit, presentation information, and small group discussion feedback.


The final 2022 Bacteria Summit Summary can be found on the State Water Board’s Bacterial Objectives page at


The Bacterial Objectives page also includes presentations and videos from the 2022 summit, as well as information about the upcoming 2023 Summit.
