Comment Letter – Bay-Delta Plan Supplemental NOP – Comprehensive Review

Dear Ms. Townsend:
The Central Valley Clear Water Association (CVCWA) appreciates the opportunity to submit comments on the Supplemental Notice of Preparation (NOP) and Notice of Scoping Meeting for Environmental Documentation for the Update and Implementation of the Water Quality Control Plan for the San Francisco Bay/Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta Estuary (Bay-Delta Plan). CVCWA is a non-profit organization representing more than 50 publicly owned treatment works (POTWs) throughout the Central Valley Region, including POTWs that discharge to the Bay-Delta. CVCWA represents its members on a number of 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.

2016 Phase I Bay-Delta Plan Amendment

Dear Chair Marcus and Members of the Board:
The Central Valley Clean Water Association (CVCWA) appreciates the opportunity to comment on the proposed revisions to the 2016 Phase I Bay-Delta Plan Amendment (Bay-Delta Plan Amendment) and Substitute Environmental Document (SED). CVCWA is a nonprofit 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. CVCWA appreciates the opportunity to comment on the 2016 Bay-Delta Plan Amendment and SED, particularly the proposed southern Delta water quality objective for salinity. We hope to continue working with State Water Resources Control Board (State Board) staff to develop alternatives for a truly workable salinity objective in the southern Delta as it applies to publically-owned treatment works (POTWs).
