Salt and Nutrient Management
The State Water Resources Control Board adopted a Recycled Water Policy in February 2009. The purpose of the Policy is to increase the use of recycled water in a manner that implements state and federal water quality laws. When recycled water is used in compliance with the Policy, Title 22, and all applicable state and federal water quality laws, the State Board and Los Angeles Regional Board strongly support its use as a safe alternative to potable water for approved uses. The Recycled Water Policy requires that Salt and Nutrient Management Plans are completed by 2014 to facilitate basin-wide management of salts and nutrients from all sources in a manner that optimizes recycled water use while ensuring protection of groundwater supply and beneficial uses, agricultural beneficial uses, and human health. The Recycled Water Policy requires stakeholders to develop implementation plans to meet these objectives for salts and nutrients. The implementation plans will then be adopted by Regional Boards as amendments to the region's Basin Plan. Regional Board staff are available to provide guidance as during the stakeholder-led development of these plans.
