Agency: State Water Resources Control Board

Subject: Proposed General Order for Restoration Projects Statewide

Letter excerpt:

ACWA appreciates and strongly supports the State Water Board’s proposed General Order and PEIR, which is critically needed to streamline permitting for, and accelerate implementation of, habitat restoration projects throughout the state in an environmentally protective manner. ACWA anticipates that the proposed General Order, particularly if adopted with ACWA’s below comments included, will help reduce expenses that encumber restoration projects, reduce the permitting time for restoration projects, improve ecological functions and services of degraded habitats, increase habitat connectivity, improve water quality, increase sequestration of carbon, and increase watershed resilience to climate change throughout the state.
