Document Description
This regulatory action is for a proposed Conditional Waiver of Waste Discharge Requirements (WDRs). The intent of the Conditional Waiver is to ensure agricultural wastewater discharges and discharges of wastes from drain maintenance in the Palo Verde Valley and Palo Verde Mesa, occur in a manner that does not adversely affect the beneficial uses defined in the Basin Plan for the Palo Verde Valley Drains, and the Palo Verde Valley Lagoon and Outfall Drain. Accordingly, the proposed Conditional Waiver establishes conditions for agricultural wastewater discharges originating within the Valley and Mesa. The Conditional Waiver also establishes conditions for drain maintenance discharges that occur as a result of drain operation and maintenance (O&M) activities.
