Subject: ELTAC 2021 Update to State Water Board

Letter excerpt:

During the State Water Board’s adoption hearing for the 2021-22 ELAP fee schedule on September 22, 2021, CASA requested specific information and details be provided during your update to the State Water Board this year, to which the Board Chair responded affirmatively. For context, the last update that the State Water Board received from an ELTAC chair was in the spring of 2020 when the new regulations were adopted with significant concern from stakeholders about their costs and impacts. Last month, the State Water Board adopted an updated fee schedule for accredited labs which featured an increase of more than 13%. More specifically, the fee schedule included a 24% increase to the base fee and a 50% increase to the field of accreditation (FOA) fee for small labs with less than 11 FOAs, which is even more disconcerting given that the prior year’s fee schedule also included significant increases that were supposed to align the program with the costs of the new regulations.
