SANTA CLARITA, CA – As part of its public outreach efforts, the Santa Clarita Valley Sanitation District is holding the second of three public hearings in the Valley on the Draft Chloride Compliance Facilities Plan and Environmental Impact Report on Wednesday, June 5 at 7:00 P.M. This hearing will be held at Stevenson Ranch Elementary School, 25820 Carroll Lane, Stevenson Ranch, CA, with the doors opening at 6:30 P.M.

To avoid steep State fines or loss of local control, the SCV Sanitation District is conducting this local planning process to determine the most cost-effective and environmentally sound method for the Valley’s sewage treatment facilities to meet the State’s strict salt limit for discharge of recycled water to the Santa Clara River.

The Draft Facilities Plan and Environmental Impact Report, describing the choices for meeting the State’s strict salt mandate, have been released for public review and comment. The public is invited and encouraged to review and comment on the Draft Facilities Plan and Environmental Impact Report.

The public hearing, which is part of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) process, is not a decision-making meeting. It is an opportunity for the community to provide comments on the Draft Environmental Impact Report for Chloride Compliance Facilities Plan. A court reporter will be present at the public hearing to document all public comments for the administrative record. Your comments and our responses to those comments will be part of the Final documents. There will not be an opportunity to answer questions during the public hearings.

One additional public hearing will also be held as part of this outreach effort. Information on the dates and locations of the upcoming public hearings can be found at

In addition, to attending one of the public hearings, you may submit written comments on the Draft Environmental Impact Report to Mary Jacobs, Senior Engineer, Sanitation Districts of Los Angeles County, 1955 Workman Mill Road, CA 90601, or contact her at (562) 908-4288, Ext. 2728

The 60-day public comment period for the draft Environmental Impact Report ends on June 24, 2013. The Draft Chloride Compliance Facilities Plan and Draft EIR can viewed at, Santa Clarita City Hall or your local library.

The District serves the wastewater management needs of the Santa Clarita Valley. The agency protects public health and the environment by constructing, operating, and maintaining a regional system that collects, treats, recycles and disposes of wastewater.
