Evaluation of the Municipal and Domestic Supply Beneficial Use

Dear Ms. Littlejohn:
The Central Valley Clean Water Association (CVCWA) appreciates the opportunity to provide these comments as part of the Central Valley Water Quality Control Board’s (Central Valley Water Board) California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) scoping process. CVCWA is a non-profit organization that represents publicly owned treatment works (POTWs) throughout the Central Valley Region in regulatory matters affecting surface water discharge and land application. We approach these matters with a perspective to balance environmental and economic interests consistent with applicable law. We are submitting these comments because the effort to evaluate the MUN use in agriculturally (Ag) dominated water bodies of the Central Valley and to develop subsequent Basin Plan amendments may have significant impacts on CVCWA’s members and other POTWs throughout the Region.
