§ 3954. Revisions to the Water Quality Control Plan for the Lahontan Region, as Adopted by the California Regional Water Quality Control Board, Lahontan Region on January 23, 2002.
On July 12, 2000, the Lahontan Regional Water Quality Control Board (LRWQCB) adopted Resolution No. 6-00-66 amending the Water Quality Control Plan for the Lahontan Basin (Basin Plan). The amendments include both non-regulatory provisions (editorial and procedural changes) and regulatory provisions. The regulatory provisions of the amendments are:
(1) Revisions to a regionwide prohibition against discharges of industrial waste to surface waters. The amended language provides that discharges of “industrial process wastes,” as defined, may be allowed to surface waters not designated for the Municipal and Domestic Supply (MUN) beneficial uses, if such discharges comply with General Discharge Limitations and appropriate findings under state and federal antidegradation regulations are made. The amendments also add definitions of “industrial process wastes,” “municipal and domestic wastewater,” and “industry.”
(2) Removal of the potential Municipal and Domestic Supply (MUN) beneficial use designation from ground water within defined topographic boundaries surrounding Searles Lake, and addition of the Industrial Process Supply (PRO) use to ground water beneath the Searles Lake bed (Searles Valley ground water basin, Department of Water Resources Basin No. 52).
1. New section summarizing regulatory changes filed 4-3-2002; Basin Plan revisions approved by the State Water Resources Control Board 1-23-2002 pursuant to resolution 2002-0001 were approved by OAL and effective pursuant to Government Code section 11353 on 4-3-2002 (Register 2002, No. 14).
