§ 3910. Policy on the Use of Wastewater to Create, Restore, and/or Enhance Wetlands.
This policy revises a 1977 policy to add new provisions which: 1) establish a preference for the creation (rather than restoration or enhancement) of wetlands with wastewater; 2) require the project applicant to consider important wetland functions and values; and 3) in most cases, prohibit the use of these wetlands to satisfy Clean Water Act Section 404 mitigation requirements. The policy also revises the earlier policy to reflect current Basin Planning language, allow portions of a wetland to be created for wastewater treatment, and require a monitoring plan as part of the management plan.
