Document Description
The Los Angeles Water Board proposes to adopt a Conditional Waiver of Waste Discharge Requirements (Conditional Waiver) for areas in it's jurisdiction covered by a Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) for Trash including: Los Angeles River Watershed Trash TMDL, Ballona Creek Trash TMDL, Malibu Creek Watershed Trash TMDL, Revolon Slough and Beardsley Wash Trash TMDL, Santa Monica Bay Nearshore and Offshore Debris TMDL, Machado Lake Trash TMDL, Lake Elizabeth, Munz Lake and Lake Hughes Trash TMDL (Santa Clara River Lake Trash TMDL), Legg Lake Trash TMDL, Ventura River Estuary Trash TMDL, San Gabriel River East Fork Trash TMDL, and Echo Park Lake, Peck Road Park Lake, and Lincoln Park Lake Trash TMDLs. The purpose of the Conditional Waiver is to ensure that the discharges of trash from nonpoint sources attain assigned load allocations through implementation of Minimum Frequency of Assessment Program/and Collection and best management practices program consisting of regularly scheduled trash assessment, collection, and disposal, to reduce the amount of trash that accumulates between MFAC events. The required assessments and collections range from daily to monthly and involve personnel walking along the shorelines or traveling by boat to manually pick up trash, and in some cases, collection involves the use of a tractor with a mechanical attachment to rake the beach and clean the top six inches of sand above the high tide line. BMPs can include installation of trash receptacles, enforcement of litter ordinances, and cleanup events.
