SECTION 30410-30420



30410.  (a) The commission and the San Francisco Bay Conservation
and Development Commission shall conduct a joint review of this
division and Title 7.2 (commencing with Section 66600) of the
Government Code to determine how the program administered by the San
Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission shall be
related to this division. Both commissions shall jointly present
their recommendations to the Legislature not later than July 1, 1978.
   (b) It is the intent of the Legislature that the ports under the
jurisdiction of the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development
Commission, including the Ports of San Francisco, Oakland, Richmond,
Redwood City, Encinal Terminals, and Benicia, should be treated no
less favorably than the ports under the jurisdiction of the
commission covered in Chapter 8 (commencing with Section 30700) under
the terms of any legislation which is developed pursuant to such
study.


30411.  (a) The Department of Fish and Game and the Fish and Game
Commission are the principal state agencies responsible for the
establishment and control of wildlife and fishery management programs
and the commission shall not establish or impose any controls with
respect thereto that duplicate or exceed regulatory controls
established by these agencies pursuant to specific statutory
requirements or authorization.
   (b) The Department of Fish and Game, in consultation with the
commission and the Department of Boating and Waterways, may study
degraded wetlands and identify those which can most feasibly be
restored in conjunction with development of a boating facility as
provided in subdivision (a) of Section 30233. Any study conducted
under this subdivision shall include consideration of all of the
following:
   (1) Whether the wetland is so severely degraded and its natural
processes so substantially impaired that it is not capable of
recovering and maintaining a high level of biological productivity
without major restoration activities.
   (2) Whether a substantial portion of the degraded wetland, but in
no event less than 75 percent, can be restored and maintained as a
highly productive wetland in conjunction with a boating facilities
project.
   (3) Whether restoration of the wetland's natural values, including
its biological productivity and wildlife habitat features, can most
feasibly be achieved and maintained in conjunction with a boating
facility or whether there are other feasible ways to achieve these
values.
   (c) The Legislature finds and declares that salt water or brackish
water aquaculture is a coastal-dependent use which should be
encouraged to augment food supplies and to further the policies set
forth in Chapter 4 (commencing with Section 825) of Division 1. The
Department of Fish and Game may identify coastal sites it determines
to be appropriate for aquaculture facilities. If the department
identifies these sites, it shall transmit information identifying the
sites to the commission and the relevant local government agency.
The commission, and where appropriate, local governments, shall,
consistent with the coastal planning requirements of this division,
provide for as many coastal sites identified by the Department of
Fish and Game for any uses that are consistent with the policies of
Chapter 3 (commencing with Section 30200) of this division.
   (d) Any agency of the state owning or managing land in the coastal
zone for public purposes shall be an active participant in the
selection of suitable sites for aquaculture facilities and shall make
the land available for use in aquaculture when feasible and
consistent with other policies of this division and other provisions
of law.



30412.  (a) In addition to Section 13142.5 of the Water Code, this
section shall apply to the commission and the State Water Resources
Control Board and the California regional water quality control
boards.
   (b) The State Water Resources Control Board and the California
regional water quality control boards are the state agencies with
primary responsibility for the coordination and control of water
quality. The State Water Resources Control Board has primary
responsibility for the administration of water rights pursuant to
applicable law. The commission shall assure that proposed development
and local coastal programs shall not frustrate this section. The
commission shall not, except as provided in subdivision (c), modify,
adopt conditions, or take any action in conflict with any
determination by the State Water Resources Control Board or any
California regional water quality control board in matters relating
to water quality or the administration of water rights.
   Except as provided in this section, nothing herein shall be
interpreted in any way either as prohibiting or limiting the
commission, local government, or port governing body from exercising
the regulatory controls over development pursuant to this division in
a manner necessary to carry out this division.
   (c) Any development within the coastal zone or outside the coastal
zone which provides service to any area within the coastal zone that
constitutes a treatment work shall be reviewed by the commission and
any permit it issues, if any, shall be determinative only with
respect to the following aspects of the development:
   (1) The siting and visual appearance of treatment works within the
coastal zone.
   (2) The geographic limits of service areas within the coastal zone
which are to be served by particular treatment works and the timing
of the use of capacity of treatment works for those service areas to
allow for phasing of development and use of facilities consistent
with this division.
   (3) Development projections which determine the sizing of
treatment works for providing service within the coastal zone.
   The commission shall make these determinations in accordance with
the policies of this division and shall make its final determination
on a permit application for a treatment work prior to the final
approval by the State Water Resources Control Board for the funding
of such treatment works. Except as specifically provided in this
subdivision, the decisions of the State Water Resources Control Board
relative to the construction of treatment works shall be final and
binding upon the commission.
   (d) The commission shall provide or require reservations of sites
for the construction of treatment works and points of discharge
within the coastal zone adequate for the protection of coastal
resources consistent with the provisions of this division.

within the statutory responsibility of the latter.
   (b) The commission shall, prior to January 1, 1978, and after one
or more public hearings, designate those specific locations within
the coastal zone where the location of a facility as defined in
Section 25110 would prevent the achievement of the objectives of this
division; provided, however, that specific locations that are
presently used for such facilities and reasonable expansion thereof
shall not be so designated. Each such designation shall include a
description of the boundaries of those locations, the objectives of
this division which would be so affected, and detailed findings
concerning the significant adverse impacts that would result from
development of a facility in the designated area. The commission
shall consider the conclusions, if any, reached by the State Energy
Resources Conservation and Development Commission in its most
recently promulgated comprehensive report issued pursuant to Section
25309. The commission shall transmit a copy of its report prepared
pursuant to this subdivision to the State Energy Resources
Conservation and Development Commission.
   (c) The commission, after it completes its initial designations in
1978, shall, prior to January 1, 1980, and once every two years

SECTION 30410-30420



30410.  (a) The commission and the San Francisco Bay Conservation
and Development Commission shall conduct a joint review of this
division and Title 7.2 (commencing with Section 66600) of the
Government Code to determine how the program administered by the San
Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission shall be
related to this division. Both commissions shall jointly present
their recommendations to the Legislature not later than July 1, 1978.
   (b) It is the intent of the Legislature that the ports under the
jurisdiction of the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development
Commission, including the Ports of San Francisco, Oakland, Richmond,
Redwood City, Encinal Terminals, and Benicia, should be treated no
less favorably than the ports under the jurisdiction of the
commission covered in Chapter 8 (commencing with Section 30700) under
the terms of any legislation which is developed pursuant to such
study.


30411.  (a) The Department of Fish and Game and the Fish and Game
Commission are the principal state agencies responsible for the
establishment and control of wildlife and fishery management programs
and the commission shall not establish or impose any controls with
respect thereto that duplicate or exceed regulatory controls
established by these agencies pursuant to specific statutory
requirements or authorization.
   (b) The Department of Fish and Game, in consultation with the
commission and the Department of Boating and Waterways, may study
degraded wetlands and identify those which can most feasibly be
restored in conjunction with development of a boating facility as
provided in subdivision (a) of Section 30233. Any study conducted
under this subdivision shall include consideration of all of the
following:
   (1) Whether the wetland is so severely degraded and its natural
processes so substantially impaired that it is not capable of
recovering and maintaining a high level of biological productivity
without major restoration activities.
   (2) Whether a substantial portion of the degraded wetland, but in
no event less than 75 percent, can be restored and maintained as a
highly productive wetland in conjunction with a boating facilities
project.
   (3) Whether restoration of the wetland's natural values, including
its biological productivity and wildlife habitat features, can most
feasibly be achieved and maintained in conjunction with a boating
facility or whether there are other feasible ways to achieve these
values.
   (c) The Legislature finds and declares that salt water or brackish
water aquaculture is a coastal-dependent use which should be
encouraged to augment food supplies and to further the policies set
forth in Chapter 4 (commencing with Section 825) of Division 1. The
Department of Fish and Game may identify coastal sites it determines
to be appropriate for aquaculture facilities. If the department
identifies these sites, it shall transmit information identifying the
sites to the commission and the relevant local government agency.
The commission, and where appropriate, local governments, shall,
consistent with the coastal planning requirements of this division,
provide for as many coastal sites identified by the Department of
Fish and Game for any uses that are consistent with the policies of
Chapter 3 (commencing with Section 30200) of this division.
   (d) Any agency of the state owning or managing land in the coastal
zone for public purposes shall be an active participant in the
selection of suitable sites for aquaculture facilities and shall make
the land available for use in aquaculture when feasible and
consistent with other policies of this division and other provisions
of law.

section shall apply to the commission and the State Water Resources
Control Board and the California regional water quality control
boards.
   (b) The State Water Resources Control Board and the California
regional water quality control boards are the state agencies with
primary responsibility for the coordination and control of water
quality. The State Water Resources Control Board has primary
responsibility for the administration of water rights pursuant to
applicable law. The commission shall assure that proposed development
and local coastal programs shall not frustrate this section. The
commission shall not, except as provided in subdivision (c), modify,
adopt conditions, or take any action in conflict with any
determination by the State Water Resources Control Board or any
California regional water quality control board in matters relating
to water quality or the administration of water rights.
   Except as provided in this section, nothing herein shall be
interpreted in any way either as prohibiting or limiting the
commission, local government, or port governing body from exercising
the regulatory controls over development pursuant to this division in
a manner necessary to carry out this division.
   (c) Any development within the coastal zone or outside the coastal
zone which provides service to any area within the coastal zone that
constitutes a treatment work shall be reviewed by the commission and
any permit it issues, if any, shall be determinative only with
respect to the following aspects of the development:
   (1) The siting and visual appearance of treatment works within the
coastal zone.
   (2) The geographic limits of service areas within the coastal zone
which are to be served by particular treatment works and the timing
of the use of capacity of treatment works for those service areas to
allow for phasing of development and use of facilities consistent
with this division.
   (3) Development projections which determine the sizing of
treatment works for providing service within the coastal zone.
   The commission shall make these determinations in accordance with
the policies of this division and shall make its final determination
on a permit application for a treatment work prior to the final
approval by the State Water Resources Control Board for the funding
of such treatment works. Except as specifically provided in this
subdivision, the decisions of the State Water Resources Control Board
relative to the construction of treatment works shall be final and
binding upon the commission.
