Facing a situation Santa Clarita Mayor Bob Kellar called “the most complicated decision” he’s faced in more than a decade on Santa Clarita City Council, the Sanitation District is expected to move on one four options for chloride treatment, which are being presented by district staff.

“This is a very controversial decision,” Kellar said. “It’s a very expensive decision for our community members, and I just want to make sure I make the right decision for our community on this.”

Monday’s decision follows a three-hour meeting Nov. 21, when more than 50 residents and Santa Clarita Valley business interests spoke out on chloride options presented by district staff.

Santa Clarita Valley Sanitation District staff presented two chloride recommendations after looking at four options for water treatment, which is being mandated by the state’s Regional Water Quality Control Board.

The initial report released for comment by Sanitation District officials contained several proposed fee increases for ratepayers that were expected to take place by the completion of the projection in the fiscal year 2019-2020.

The Santa Clarita Valley Sanitation District services approximately 248,000 people who discharge water in the Santa Clara Riverbed.

Officials with the state’s Regional Water Quality Control Board have said water sent downstream can have a chloride level of no more than 100 milligrams per liter.

The water currently has a level of about 130, and the four treatment options that have been endorsed are expensive.

For Alternative 4 of the AWRM, the cost to ratepayers based on the average usage associated with a single-family home would be about $395 per year, if the plan stayed in Phase 1. If Phase 2 needs to be implemented, then the cost would jump to $535 per year.

If Alternative 2,the deep-well injection is implemented, then the rate would increase to $410 per year.

The Sanitation District’s governing board is expected to approve one of four options, all of which will have varying degrees of financial impact for local ratepayers, at the Oct. 28 meeting.

A report released by Sanitation District officials contained an overview of the Sanitation District’s operations, common misconceptions and why district engineers made the recommendation they did.

“Over a 10-year period, the SCVSD repeatedly challenged the state’s numerous mandates and actions relating to chloride, or salt, in the Santa Clarita Valley,” the report stated.

“Fine amounts could reach many millions of dollar,” the report states. “In addition, if the (Santa Clarita Valley’s) treatment plants are not upgraded, the state could take control away from the local SCVSD.”

The meeting is being hosted at City Hall at 23920 Valencia Boulevard in room No. 120, starting at 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 28.
