Excerpt: Morro Bay, California, was accepted into the NEP in 1995, and recently a public draft of the CCMP for Morro Bay was completed. The Morro Bay watershed was also chosen as a site for a long term National Monitoring Project in 1992. As part of the NMP, California Polytechnic State University partnered with the Central Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board (CCRWQCB) to design a paired watershedstudy to evaluate Best Management Practices (BMPs) effect on improving water and habitat quality rangeland (See Coastlines February, 2000 Issue 10.1). Numerous BMPs have been implemented, including streambank restoration, riparian pastures and fencing, and cattle watering system improvements. A sediment retention project and a time-controlled grazing project are being monitored to document whether they result in improving water quality. These projects on private ranches also provide public outreach to landowners.
