In February 2009, the State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) adopted the Recycled Water Policy to encourage and provide guidance for the use of recycled water in California. The Recycled Water Policy also requires local water and wastewater entities, together with local salt and nutrient contributing stakeholders, to develop a Salt and Nutrient Management Plan (SNMP) in a cooperative and collaborative manner for each groundwater basin in California, to manage salts, nutrients, and other significant chemical compounds on a basin-wide basis.
The SNMPs are intended to help a region understand its long term water quality and streamline the permitting process for various water quality related projects while ensuring compliance with water quality objectives.
Mojave Salt and Nutrient Management Plan (Final) is now available for download.
