The San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors unanimously took a position opposing amendments to the federal Clean Water Act, which could lead to federal regulations for water on private property.

The board voted 4-0 on Tuesday, with Supervisor Victor Mow absent, to oppose House Resolution 2421 and Senate Bill 1870. The bills would remove the term "navigable waters" and replace it with "Waters of the United States." That would add federal control to wetlands, irrigation, roadside ditches, interconnected groundwater and non-navigable waterways, according to county Public Works Director Tom Flinn.
