A panel of experts will address the high water chloride treatment costs facing Santa Clarita Valley businesses and residents at the Valley Industry Association’s business lunch Wednesday.

Significant concentrations of chlorides in the Santa Clara River prompted regional government agencies to consider the construction of costly filtration plants to remove the chlorides to protect downstream crops, a spokeswoman for the business organization said.

“The chloride issue could potentially affect the pocketbooks of every family and every business in the Santa Clarita Valley,” said Kathy Norris, CEO and president of VIA. “Our goal with this luncheon and panel discussion is to provide information and help inform our members and the community at large about the status of this issue, and the potential costs and options.”

The panelists include Phil Friess of the Los Angeles County Sanitation Districts; Dan Masnada, general manager of the Castaic Lake Water Agency; Jim Holt of The Signal newspaper; and Robert Newman from the city of Santa Clarita.

VIA is holding the panel discussion at the Valencia Country Club. The event is open to both members and the public in general, but reservations must be made in advance.

“We’re looking forward to an informative discussion,” Norris said.
