Comments on the Tentative Waste Discharge Requirements for El Dorado Irrigation District, Camino Heights Wastewater Treatment Facility

Dear Ms. Fu:
The Central Valley Clean Water Association (CVCWA) appreciates the opportunity to
submit these comments on the tentative waste discharge requirements (Tentative Order) for
El Dorado Irrigation District’s Camino Heights Wastewater Treatment Facility (WWTF). CVCWA is
a non-profit organization representing more than 50 publicly owned treatment works
throughout the Central Valley Region in regulatory matters affecting surface water discharge,
land application, and water reuse. We approach these matters with a perspective to balance
environmental and economic interests consistent with state and federal law. For the following
reasons, CVCWA respectfully requests that you revise the Tentative Order to reflect that the
applicable water quality objective for electrical conductivity (EC) is a range, rather than
900 micromhos per centimeter (µmhos/cm).
