In August 2005, the Statewide
CCA Committee selected one Pilot CCA in each of the four regions
of the coast, and one within San Francisco Bay. Beginning with the
five Pilot CCAs, the CCA Program will form teams of local stakeholder
(watershed groups, special interest organizations, and community
members) and government agencies (state, federal, and local) to develop
community-based NPS Watershed Assessment and Action Plans for addressing
polluted runoff that threatens coastal resources within these CCAs.
Please see the Pilot CCAs by Region page for more information.
Statewide CCA Committee will review the criteria for identifying
CCAs, and update the CCA list in spring 2006. Please check back
for more information.
