Dear Mr. Mushegan:
The Central Valley Clean Water Association (CVCWA) appreciates the opportunity to comment on the tentative Waste Discharge Requirements for the Cities of Fresno and Clovis Regional Wastewater Reclamation Facility, Fresno County (Tentative Order). CVCWA is a non-profit association of public agencies located within the Central Valley region that provide wastewater collection, treatment, and water recycling services to millions of Central Valley residents and businesses. We approach these matters with the perspective of balancing environmental and economic interests consistent with state and federal law. In this letter, we provide the following comments regarding the requirements that Fresno replace all monitoring wells that have gone dry, Discharge Specification D.1, electrical conductivity (EC) objectives and limitations, and ultraviolet (UV) disinfection dosing specifications.
