Santa Clarita Valley Sanitation District Responds to State Fines for the Santa Clarita Valley's Failure to Meet State Chloride (Salt) Limits and State Timeline

December 27, 2012
Santa Clarita, CA - The Board of the Santa Clarita Valley Sanitation District (District) moved swiftly last week in response to the State of California's levy of a $280,250 fine on the property owners of the Santa Clarita Valley. The State fine, which could have been much higher than the proposed amount, is for failing to meet the State's deadline to submit a Facilities Plan and Environmental Impact Report for a compliance project to meet the State's legal mandate for levels of chloride (salt) allowed in the Valley's treated wastewater. The fine clearly shows that the State is serious about enforcing its strict legal salt limits and the timeline for the District to meet those limits. The Board of Directors acted to protect Valley property owners from further, steeper State fines by requesting a settlement with the State and by re-affirming the District's committment to adopting an environmentally-sound and cost-effective salt compliance project as soon as possible to meet the State's strict salt limits.
