CSPA Submits Comment on Bear Valley Wastewater

On 23 June 2011, the California Sportfishing Protection Alliance submitted a 51-page comment letter to the Central Valley Central Valley Regional Water Quality Control Board regarding the proposed wastewater discharge permit for the Bear Valley Water District’s wastewater treatment plant.  The facility discharges a half-million gallons a day of treated wastewater to Blood Creek, a tributary of the N. Fork of the Stanislaus River.  CSPA’s letter identifies myriad technical and legal deficiencies and points out that the proposed permit is severely non-protective of the fisheries and other beneficial uses of downstream waters.
