Santa Clarita Valley Sanitation District officials will hold the first in a series of public meetings tonight regarding the proposed plan to remove chloride from the Santa Clara River.

The meeting starts at 7 p.m. at Live Oak Elementary School, 27715 Saddleridge Way in Castaic.

Citing orders from the Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control District, sanitation district officials are proposing one of four options to remove chloride from Santa Clarita Valley wastewaters. Downstream farmers say chloride damages their crops.

Santa Clarita Valley water treatment plants, which were not designed to remove chloride, treat wastewater from the city’s sewer system and release it into the river.

Currently, yearly sewer fees are $213 for an average Santa Clarita Valley single-family home.

Under the plan’s options, residents would likely be charged $395 to $535 a year, depending on which option was approved.
