Subj: [oceanoutfallgroup] STATE BOARD OVERTURNS GOLETA SANITARY APPEAL!

OOGers!
I'm overjoyed to report that today the SWRCB (3-2) denied Goleta Sanitary District appeal - and upholds the Regional Board's resolution reqwuiring GSD to submit a new NPDES permit application within 45 days. GSD is expected to try for another 301h waiver, with revised (downward) flow projection, but we at Heal the Ocean can handle this.

 

THE FLOOD OF LETTERS AND E-MAILS FROM OOG WAS A TREMENDOUS HELP. At the hearing, the five SWRCB members were already trouncing the waiver, before we (Heal the Ocean) even got to the microphone. I know this
letter/e-mail campaign worked.

thanks, all!
Hillary
