CEQA Scoping Meetings to be held for CV-SALTS
Notice is hereby given that staff of the Central Valley Regional Water Quality Control Board (Central Valley Water Board or Board) have scheduled public meetings to discuss, and solicit comments and suggestions from the public, regarding the development of a Central Valley Salt and Nitrate Management Plan (SNMP) and the incorporation of components of the SNMP into Water Quality Control Plans for the Sacramento River and San Joaquin River Basins and the Tulare Lake Basin (collectively, Basin Plans).
The purpose of this early consultation is to provide participants with background on salinity and nitrate issues within the Central Valley, an overview of the Recycled Water Policy, an overview of the potential structure of a Central Valley SNMP. The meetings will also provide the public with an opportunity to provide input regarding the range of project actions, alternatives, reasonably foreseeable methods of compliance, significant and cumulative impacts, and potential mitigation measures that the Board will need to analyze in the course of developing the SNMP and associated Basin Plan amendments.
The public meetings will be held at the following dates and locations:
