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

A spate of articles and editorials continue to be generated about the victory last week, and also, about beach pollution problems, and problems with California's water supply. Also, the Daily Pilot printed a correction about quotes from OCSD Director Mark Leyes, who made comments during the OCSD meeting about a waiver being voted upon in 5 years, but that was before the vote which abolished the waiver. Therefore, the possibility of reapplying for a waiver is rather remote. Apparently, it would take an act of Congress for OCSD to get another waiver, which by the way, is how San Diego got their waiver. Here are the news articles and editorials. Enjoy:
