Analysis in San Diego Evaluates Costs and Benefits of Scenarios to Limit Bacteria Entering Waterways

Environmental Incentives conducted a Cost-Benefit Analysis to evaluate alternative scenarios to achieve San Diego Region Bacteria Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs), calculating the costs and benefits to human health, environment, and recreation for each option. Findings indicate that targeting human sources of bacteria is the most cost-effective strategy to improve public health and recreation. This, along with other findings, will help policy makers as they consider changes to TMDL implementation that could lead to greater benefits at a lower overall cost.
