Supervisors approve county review of SCV chloride plan

One of four options for ridding the Santa Clarita Valley of excess chloride met with opposition elsewhere in the county Tuesday, as Supervisor Gloria Molina raised issue with one plan to truck the salt into her district.

Molina’s motion for studies on the trucking plan were approved unanimously by other supervisors.

The third option offered in a chloride-reduction proposal for the Santa Clarita Valley calls for salt to be removed from the water and trucked to either an East Los Angeles disposal site or to another site in Carson.

Molina’s motion asked for the county chief executive officer to review a draft environmental impact report for the Santa Clarita Valley Sanitation District’s chloride-reduction plan, which was released last week, to ensure it does not have a negative effect on areas in her district.

Molina said the proposal could impact residents in the San Gabriel Valley or northern portions of Los Angeles County.

“The local communities may suffer from additional pollution due to truck emissions as well as increased traffic congestion,” the motion reads.

Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich supported the motion, said Edel Vizcarra, planning and land use deputy for the supervisor.

“I think any supervisor would have concerns with that,” Vizcarra said of the truck traffic that could be generated.
