An environmental group has challenged Lodi's wastewater discharge permit, which could force the regional water board to issue costly new requirements to the city's discharge practice.

In a 25-page petition letter, the California Sportfishing Protection Alliance appealed the Central Valley Regional Water Quality Control Board's decision to grant Lodi's White Slough wastewater treatment plant a discharge permit in September.

    Here we go once more. Don't worry, I'm sure the CC knuckleheads will vote on yet another increase to our water bill to deal with yet another "somebody else will fix this" decision by them. Deal with the report's results now or WE, the citizens of Lodi, will pay the price....AGAIN !

    The enforcement portion of the Water Board wrote the critical investigative report. The permit-issuing portion of the Board wants to spare cities costs at the expense of our water supply and doesn't like the report because it criticizes improper things they've let slide. That heirarchy also supresses the enforcement branch with respect to municipalities, and this frustrates the enforcers. So the Board is not vacillating -- this in interdepartmental infighting, with the main part of the Board in coverup mode, and the upstart enforcers speaking the uncomfortable truth.

    The public works was told years ago that someday those ponds would need to be lined, but good old Lodi uses the same old way of thinking: just don't bring it up and soon they'll forget about it. Like the pollution, water meters, completely collapsed sewer lines and the underground water system of decrepit, old piping that's rotted apart.
