CSPA, Coalition Submit Comments on State Board Trash Control Amendments

On 5 August 2014, CSPA joined a coalition on environmental organization in commenting on the State Water Resource Control Board’s proposed amendments to the Statewide Water Quality Control Plans to Control Trash.  Trash impairs the health of both humans and aquatic life and is a growing threat to the chemical, physical and biological integrity of waterways.  Seventy-three waterways in California are on the CWA Section 303(d) list of impaired waters because of trash pollution.  The coalition appreciates the State Board’s efforts to reduce trash impairments but pointed out that substantial changes need to be made to the proposed amendments in order to attain true reductions in trash.
