CVCWA Comment on the Necessity of Salinity Management Plan in area with Very Low Salinity

The Regional Water Board’s Tentative Order for would require Mariposa County Lake Don Pedro Wastewater Treatment Facility to submit an individual, facility-specific Salinity Management Plan. The groundwater in the area is of good quality well below the recommended secondary MCL. In addition, the source water is a combination of very low salinity surface water and low salinity groundwater. CVCWA commented that it does not believe that a Salinity Management Plan is warranted for this facility considering its specific circumstances.
