Assemblyman requests extension for chloride-reduction review

Assemblyman Scott Wilk asked state water regulators Monday for an extension on the time Santa Clarita Valley residents have to review a plan to reduce chloride in the Santa Clara River.

At the request of the Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board, the local sanitation district issued plans to reduce chloride in the river that will cost Santa Clarita Valley sewer system users a rate hike.

Ratepayers have 60 days from the date of the plan’s release April 24 to consider their options.

Wilk’s Monday letter to the Regional Water Quality Control Board requests more time to consider the “complicated and potentially expensive issue.”

“I’m committed to finding a solution that is backed by sound science and least costly to (Santa Clarita Valley Sanitation District) ratepayers,” Wilk said in the letter.

A Regional Water Quality Control Board spokeswoman could not be reached in a phone call placed to the board Monday.
