All of us who work or live in the Santa Clarita Valley should be
concerned about a potentially unnecessary quadrupling of our sewer
bills if our voices are not heard. In April, the State Water Resources
Control Board will consider the approval of the Los Angeles Regional
Water Quality Control Board’s 2006 decision to shorten the existing
Upper Santa Clara River Chloride Total Maximum Daily Load
implementation schedule, possibly forcing the District to commitment
to building an advanced treatment facility before scientific studies
are completed to determine if the facility is necessary. This could
result in a premature commitment to advanced treatment costing the
Santa Clarita Valley community more than $350 million.    

To avoid rushed and costly upgrades, the District should be given
enough time to complete scientific studies and continue successful

public outreach and source reduction efforts. Please voice your
opinion to the State Water Board and ask them to restore the schedule
to its original timeline and therefore allow the District to complete
scientific studies before committing the community to pay $350 million
for advanced treatment. Send a letter from the City’s Environmental
Services website at www.santa-clarita.com/cityhall/cmo/environment/tmdl.asp
