On September 24, 2015, DWR submitted an application for water quality certification under section 401 of the Clean Water Act (401 Application) to the State Water Board for WaterFix. On October 30, 2015, the State Water Board issued a combined public notice for the Petition and an evidentiary hearing on the Petition and a separate public notice for the 401 Application. The Notice of Public Hearing was subsequently revised to accommodate changes in the hearing schedule.The State Water Board held a water right hearing on the WaterFix Petition from July 2016 to October 2018.  On May 2, 2019, Petitioners withdrew their WaterFix Petition, which ended the WaterFix hearing..
