Dear Ocean Outfall Group (OOG), dedicated to ending the 301(h) waiver held by the Orange County Sanitation District (OCSD):

What a great turnout tonight at OCSD, where hundreds, probably 300 people, came to the June 26 Board of Directors meeting. During the Public Comment period, about 80 some people were given 2 minutes each, and everyone had a different story to tell, unanimous against the waiver. Simply amazing, really historic. Thank you each and every one of you.

The OCSD Board of Directors postponed their decision on the level of treatment and the waiver to the July 17 meeting at 6 PM. I will forward the email from Lisa Murphy. This gives us another chance to go to the Board and demand an end to the waiver. I suggest we all plan for an encore on July 17. Let's get even more than 300 people.

Thanks again for the show tonight. It was beautiful.
