A tentative Site Cleanup Order is being considered for ExxonMobile and the Port of San Francisco for the Former Bulk Terminal 04-394 in San Francisco, San Francisco County. The Order would rescind Site Cleanup Requirements Order R2-2006-0020. The public comment period is closed.
A Tentative Cleanup and Abatement Order is being considered for Mr. Reza Valiyee, 4500 Appian Way, El Sobrante, Contra Costa County. The Order would require the Discharger to clean up and abate the effects of unauthorized fill associated with channel excavation and culvert construction in stream and riparian habitat areas of Appian Creek. Due to several amendments made to the wording, the comment period for the tentative cleanup and abatement order has been reopened for ten more days. If you have already submitted comments, they have already been considered and there is no need to resubmit. There are no substantial changes to the content of the tentative order. The public comment period is closed.
The Water Board has prepared a Revised Tentative Order to be issued to the Santa Clara Valley Water District and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for the Upper Berryessa Creek Flood Risk Management Project, Santa Clara County (Project). To provide time for interested parties to review the Revised Tentative Order, the Water Board is postponing its consideration to adopt the order to a future meeting date, to be determined (postponed from November 9, 2016). The order would authorize implementation of the Project to increase flood protection in the surrounding community and contains prohibitions and provisions in accordance with the California Water Code. The revised order addresses comments received by the due date of September 19, 2016. The Water Board is accepting written comments for only the revisions, indicated as underline text for additions, and strikeout text for deletions, in the revised order. Written comments or objections to this action must be submitted no later than December 5, 2016, by 12:00 p.m.
