[ARCHIVED] Santa Clara River Estuary Special Studies Workgroup

Public Stakeholder Workshop News

Santa Clara River Estuary Special Studies Workgroup
November 15, 2017
Community Meeting Room #202
Ventura City Hall
501 Poli Street, Ventura
10 am – 12:30 pm


Estuary Special Studies will answer:
How much tertiary treated effluent from the Ventura Water Reclamation Facility (up to 100%) should be diverted from, and how much (if any) should continue to be discharged to, the Santa Clara River Estuary to best protect the estuary’s ecology and beneficial uses.

Focus of this Workshop:
The last stakeholder workshop on this project was held in November 2016. At that meeting, we presented an update on the Phase 3 Monitoring Program, the diversion infrastructure study, an update on potable reuse regulations, preliminary results of the potable reuse demonstration facility, and an initial discussion on the CEQA process/scope. Since then, the Phase 3 monitoring program has been completed, and used for the development of a Draft Phase 3 Estuary Studies Report. The Draft Phase 3 Estuary Studies Report includes technical basis for a finding of enhancement of the beneficial uses of the Estuary and for determination of the maximum ecologically protective diversion volume (MEPDV).


At this workshop, we will review where we are and what has happened since the stakeholder group last met. We will discuss the analysis presented in the Draft Phase 3 Estuary Studies Report, and will solicit stakeholder feedback on the report findings and recommendations.
