Water Board Reminder: The Santa Ana Regional Water Quality Control Board has asked its staff to remind businesses that deal with toxic material to notify authorities in the event of a spill. The request for reminder notices was prompted by the spill of 2,000 pounds of chromium into the Chino sewer system last month because of a failure at a sewage treatment plant.

A public workshop on new requirements for sewer agencies has been rescheduled for Dec. 19. Last month, the Santa Ana Regional Water Quality Control Board said it would require more sewer line inspections and faster response to spills. Cities and other agencies that collect sewage also would have to fix crumbling pipes and report spills consistently.

The City Council voted unanimously this week to oppose renewal of a federal waiver that allows the Orange County Sanitation District to discharge sewage that is dirtier than allowed by nearly all of the nation's 16,000 public water-treatment agencies. The current waiver expires in 2003. The sanitation district's 25-member board must decide by late 2002 whether to seek a renewal from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Santa Ana Regional Water Quality Control Board.

Two environmental groups Monday asked state water quality regulators to address toxic contamination in Newport Bay and San Diego Creek. In a petition to the Santa Ana Regional Water Quality Control Board, Defend the Bay and the Natural Resources Defense Council demanded that the state adopt pollution reduction measures for Newport Bay that were recommended by the federal government two years ago.

To make Upper Newport Bay safe for water sports, the Santa Ana Regional Water Quality Control Board is considering adopting limits for pathogens--disease-causing microorganisms or viruses--in the bay. That action could cost city taxpayers millions of dollars in new programs and plans to ensure that the bay's water meets the standard. City officials support improving the bay's water quality. But due to the costs to Newport, city officials are urging the regional board to do additional study.
