The Regional Water Board’s Tentative Order for would require Mariposa County Lake Don Pedro Wastewater Treatment Facility to submit an individual, facility-specific Salinity Management Plan. The groundwater in the area is of good quality well below the recommended secondary MCL. In addition, the source water is a combination of very low salinity surface water and low salinity groundwater. CVCWA commented that it does not believe that a Salinity Management Plan is warranted for this facility considering its specific circumstances.

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.
