CSPA, Coalition Call for Immediate Agency Action to List Rivers Impaired by Inadequate Flow

On 1 April 2014, CSPA joined Russian Riverkeeper, Klamath Riverkeeper, California Coastkeeper Alliance, Karuk Tribe, Pacific Coast Federation of Fisherman’s Associations and Earth Law Center in submitting comments to the State Water Resources Control Board urging that the North Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board list rivers impaired by inadequate stream flow on the Clean Water Act’s 303(d) List of Impaired Waterways.  The coalition pointed out that several states, including Washington, Idaho, Michigan and Vermont already recognize waterways impaired by flow on their 303(d) lists.  The letter reminded the Board that, at the Board’s request, the coalition had drafted specific Lines of Evidence for the Shasta River, Scott River, Mattole River and the  Upper Main Eel River to provide examples of how these listings might be supported in the final staff report.   A press release was issued the following day.
