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

If you have had a chance to view the video that OCSD has recently distributed to Orange County libraries (see below for links), you will see that OCSD is soliciting Public Input, as in "Public Input Needed" throughout the video. Thus, this is another chance to provide Public Input to OCSD. Please distribute this to all your groups. Send an email message to OCSD at: communications@ocsd.com Let's fill up their mailbox with our emails recommending additional level of treatment with no waiver. See sample email below.

Dear Orange County Sanitation District. In your library video, you asked for public input. Here is mine. Please increase the level of treatment to sewage before discharging it into the ocean, without a waiver. I want a clean ocean. Thank you.


Here are the web links to see the video online. Thank you Mark Bixby for setting up these digital links:
