REGIONAL CONSIDERATIONS (San Diego Region Water Quality Control Board. R9)

Close Page

During Fiscal Year 2012-13, the San Diego Water Board accomplished many goals beyond that measured by the Performance Report above. A new Master Reclamation Permit was issued, and two other permits amended, that greatly increase both the capacity and distribution of recycled water in the region, as envisioned by Goal 3 of the State Board's Strategic Plan. Successful conclusion of long-standing litigation in federal court resulted in improvements to the International Waste Treatment Plant that directly benefits water quality at nearby swimming beaches. Our compliance oversight group continued to address the highest priority Class 1 violations and brought numerous cases to closure. Finally, our Groundwater Branch maintained a high rate of case closure in both Department of Defense and Underground Storage Tank cleanups.
