Santa Clarita Valley Sanitation District Announces 30-Day Extension to Public Comment Period for Draft Chloride Compliance Facilities Plan and Environmental Impact Report

SANTA CLARITA, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 20, 2013) -  The Board of Directors for the Santa Clarita Valley Sanitation District has extended the public comment period for the Draft Chloride Compliance Facilities Plan and Environmental Impact Report (EIR) by an additional 30 days. The comment period will now end on July 24, 2013.

To avoid steep State fines, the Santa Clarita Valley Sanitation District is conducting this local planning process to determine the most cost-effective and environmentally sound method for the Valley's sewage treatment facilities to meet the State's strict salt limit for discharge of recycled water to the Santa Clara River.

The Draft Facilities Plan and Environmental Impact Report, describing the choices for meeting the State's strict salt mandate, have been released for public review and comment. The public is invited and encouraged to review and comment on the Draft Facilities Plan and Environmental Impact Report. 

You may submit written comments on the Draft Environmental Impact Report to Mary Jacobs, Senior Engineer, Sanitation Districts of Los Angeles County, 1955 Workman Mill Road, Whittier, CA 90601, mjacobs@lacsd.org or contact her at (562) 908-4288, Ext. 2728. The Draft Chloride Compliance Facilities Plan and Draft EIR can viewed at www.lacsd.org, Santa Clarita City Hall or your local library.

The District serves the wastewater management needs of the Santa Clarita Valley. The agency protects public health and the environment by constructing, operating, and maintaining a regional system that collects, treats, recycles and disposes of sewage from homes and businesses in the community.
