The Regional Water Quality Control Board offered comments last week on the city of Malibu's plan to inject nearly 350,000 gallon of reclaimed water per day into the gorund in the Civic Center.
The plan is part of the planned Civic Center Wastewater Treatment Plant.
Under a Memorandum of Understanding with the Regional Water Quality Board (RWQB), the city is required to meet strict timelines to ensure that progress is being made on the design and construction of the sewer. The MOU requires commercial properties in the Civic Center Prohibition Area be connected to a centralized wastewater treatment facility by Nov. 15, 2015.
In a letter dated Jan. 16, the RWQB wrote that the city's submital of the "Recycled Use and Storage Study," "Results of Phase 1 Work: Exploratory Test Well Drilling for Malibu Injection Project" and "The Conceptual Groundwater Injection Plan" showed the city is serious about meeting the milestones for the construction of the plant.
The RWQB asked for several technical questions to be addressed.
