Dear Mr. Norman:
The undersigned statewide associations (Associations) sincerely appreciate the opportunity to provide written comments on proposed administrative changes to the Sanitary Sewer System (SSS) Waste Discharge Requirements (WDR) Monitoring and Reporting Program (MRP) released in draft form by State Water Board staff on August 14, 2012. Our associations represent public wastewater agencies providing sewer collection, wastewater treatment, and water recycling services to millions of Californians. Our associations are committed to the effective and appropriate implementation of the SSS WDR and have been partners with the State Water Resources Control Board in facilitating understanding of and compliance with the order. We also appreciate the two Data Review Committee meetings that were held in late August, 2012 to obtain feedback in a workshop setting on the proposed MRP.
