Dear Mr. Harvey:

The Central Valley Clean Water Association (CVCWA) appreciates the opportunity to submit comments on the Tentative Order for the Mariposa County Lake Don Pedro Wastewater Treatment Facility (Tentative Order). CVCWA is a non-profit organization representing more than 50 publicly owned treatment works (POTWs) throughout the Central Valley in regulatory matters affecting surface water discharge, land application, and water reuse. We carefully review permits for POTWs being proposed for adoption with a perspective to balance environmental and economic interests consistent with applicable law.
