Dear Mr. Kratzke:
The Central Valley Clean Water Association (CVCWA) appreciates the opportunity to submit these comments on the tentative waste discharge requirements (Tentative Order) for the Shasta College Wastewater Treatment Facility (WWTF) of the Shasta-Tehama-Trinity Joint
Community College District (District). 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. Upon reviewing the Tentative Order, we respectfully request that you revise it to ensure that any groundwater limitations for chloride, electrical conductivity (EC), and total dissolved solids (TDS) prescribed for the WWTF are based on a thorough consideration of site-specific conditions.
