The Central Valley Regional Water Quality Control Board will hold a public hearing March 27 and 28 to consider proposed amendments to the water quality control plan for the Sacramento and San Joaquin River basins.

According to the board, these amendments include correcting the description of the boundary between the San Joaquin River and Tulare basins; removing, correcting and updating footnotes in several tables; correcting typographical errors; and updating references to the California Department of Public Health and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.

In addition, the amendments will include the State Water Resources Control Board policies for compliance schedules and recycled water, update the incorporation and implementation policy for toxins, and the enforcement policy.

The staff report and proposed Basin Plan are available on the board’s website.

You can also obtain the plan and report at the board’s office at 11020 Sun Center Drive, Suite 200, in Rancho Cordova between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.

The meeting will be held at 8:30 a.m. at the board’s office. Contact Betty Yee two weeks prior to the meeting at 916-464-4642 for the exact date, or email betty.yee@waterboards.ca.gov.
