Change in jurisdictions: A change in the number of jurisdictions in any region when compared across biennial review periods may result from the formation of a regional agency or the incorporation of a new city.

Regional descriptions: Bay Area, Southern California Coastal, Southern California Inland  

No Rate: Means that the Board cannot determine the jurisdiction's diversion rate. This may be caused by factors such as inaccurate base-year numbers, a base year which comes after several report years, or inaccurate disposal reporting. Jurisdictions under compliance orders are listed as "no rate."

In Progress: Means that the Board has not yet considered the jurisdiction's biennial review for the report year.

Active 1066: Means the Jurisdiction is in the process of implementing a corrective plan pursuant to a Board-approved Time Extension or Alternative Diversion Requirement (ADR). No biennial review is scheduled until the Time Extension or ADR is complete.
