Sept 9 & 10 Hearing on Proposed Marina del Rey Copper TMDL

The State Water Resources Control Board has released the agenda for its September 9 & 10 meeting in Sacramento, and the agenda includes consideration of the proposed Resolution approving an amendment to the Water Quality Control Plan for the Los Angeles Region to revise a total maximum daily load for toxic pollutants in Marina del Rey Harbor.

RBOC has submitted comments to the State Water Resources Control Board, urging that the state board:

  1. Delay implementation or approval of copper total maximum daily loads [TMDLs] in any salt water bodies in California until a number of key actions occur; and
  2. Reject the proposed amendment to the Los Angeles Regional Basin Plan to revise the TMDLs for Marina del Rey Toxic Pollutants.
