Notice of California Environmental Quality Act Scoping for Central Valley Pyrethroid Pesticides Total Maximum Daily Load and Basin Plan Amendment

Dear Ms. Fojut:
The Central Valley Clean Water Association (CVCWA) appreciates the opportunity to provide the early 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 development of water quality objectives and a total maximum daily load (TMDL) for pyrethroid pesticides may have significant impacts on CVCWA’s members and other POTWs throughout the Region.
