BPC Joins In Letter to SWRCB Regarding Procedures for Discharges of Dredged or Fill Materials

In a letter addressed to the State Water Resources Control Board on August 18, 2016, BPC joined a coalition of organizations to comment on the Procedures for Discharges of Dredged or Fill Materials to Waters of the State (“Procedures”), formerly known as the Wetland and Riparian Protection Policy. The letter addresses stakeholders’ concerns, including vague and undefined terms that are likely to lead to inconsistent applications.

Among other requests, the letter asks for a second comment period of 45 days minimum to allow for sufficient review of the Procedures.
