CASA and WateReuse CA are working closely on testimony and written comments on proposed revisions  to the State Water Board’s Recycled Water Policy.  We seek changes on these key issues:

  • A proposed new goal to minimize discharges of wastewater to oceans, bays and estuaries;
  • New provisions addressing compliance with the change of place of use provisions of Water Code section 1211;
  • The inclusion of bioanalytical screening methods for CECs in recycled water.

The Water Board will hold a hearing on the proposed policy June 19 in Sacramento.  Written comments are due by noon on June 26.
