2015 406 Plan draft for 20-day Public Review


The San Gabriel Basin Water Quality Authority (“WQA”) is in the process of revising its San Gabriel Basin Groundwater Quality Management and Remediation Plan (“§406 Plan”) for 2015.  On behalf of the Board of Directors of the WQA, I invite you to review the draft document on our website at   You may also call or e-mail us using the contact information below to request a print copy that can be mailed to you or a .pdf version which will be promptly emailed to you.

In summary, the revised §406 Plan promotes improvement of groundwater quality in the San Gabriel Basin (“the Basin”) by setting forth: (1) a general process under which this plan shall be developed and implemented; (2) remedial goals; and (3) a restatement of existing regulatory authority governing cleanup within the Basin, in addition to requirements of the United States Environmental Protection Agency.

On January 21, 2015, the Board of Directors approved the opening of a 20-day public comment period to receive comments on the §406 Plan.  Comments may be submitted in writing via U.S. mail, facsimile, or email on or before February 10, 2015 at 5:00 p.m.

The Board of Directors is scheduled to adopt the revised §406 Plan at its regular Board meeting on February 18, 2015.  If you wish to receive a copy of the §406 Plan after its adoption by the WQA Board of Directors, please contact Stephanie Moreno at the phone number or email address listed below.  The plan will be available in a print copy or an electronic .pdf file.  Please specify which format you prefer.
