Dear Ms. Littlejohn:
The Central Valley Clean Water Association (CVCWA) and California Association of Sanitation Agencies (CASA) appreciate the opportunity to comment on the Amendments to the Water Quality Control Plans for the Sacramento River and San Joaquin River Basins and Tulare Lake Basin to Establish a Region-‐Wide Municipal and Domestic Supply (MUN) Beneficial Use Evaluation Process in Agriculturally Dominated Surface Water Bodies and Remove the MUN Beneficial Use from 231 Constructed or Modified Ag Drains in the San Luis Canal Company (Draft Amendments). CVCWA is a non-‐profit 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. For 60 years, CASA has been the leading voice for public wastewater agencies on regulatory, legislative and legal issues. We are an association of local agencies, engaged in advancing the recycling of wastewater into usable water, generation of renewable energy, and other valuable resources. Through these efforts we help create a clean and sustainable environment for Californians.
