1027620 05/04/2017 Chronic Toxicity Chronic Toxicity (Species 1) Monthly Average limit is 16.5 TUc and reported valu The chronic toxicity test results are an artifact of the conservative toxicity testing procedure set forth in the NPDES permit for the CDP, and did not result in harm to the environment. Under existing regulations, the CDP is required to meet the toxicity standard after initial mixing occurs. Initial mixing includes the mixing of the CDP's brine discharge with the discharge from the Encina Power Plant (four gallons of seawater exiting the power plant is mixed with every gallon of brine leaving the CDP); and then the combined CDP/power plant discharge receives additional mixing in the ocean prior to reaching the compliance point under the permit that is located 1,000 feet offshore (15 gallons of seawater mixes with every gallon of combined CDP/power plant discharge prior to reaching the compliance point). Under the terms of the permit, the CDP is required to test for toxicity at higher discharge concentrations than is actually occurring at the compliance point. This is because the conservative testing regime set forth in the permit fails to take into consideration the initial dilution provided by the power plant. In accordance with the Order, further steps are being taken to identify and minimize source(s) of toxicity. Accelerated toxicity monitoring was initiated immediately after the first test demonstrating a toxicity issue and a Toxicity Investigation Evaluation (TIE) is being conducted in conformance with a Regional Water Board approved Toxicity Reduction Evaluation (TRE) Plan. The TIE includes investigative toxicity testing to identify the source of the toxicity. The Discharger has been in close communication with the Regional Water Board on the CDP toxicity monitoring and the TIE. Additional sampling and testing will continue in an effort to identify and minimize the source(s) of toxicity. Discharger Water Board Staff
1027621 05/31/2017 Deficient Monitoring Failed to submit daily sample analysis results, excluding chronic toxicity resul CDP Laboratory Director has developed a formal sampling procedure which identifies conditions which require samples to be collected and personnel responsibilities. Additionally, CDP Laboratory Director and Operations Manager have reviewed the SOP with personnel and will ensure the sampling protocol is administered as per the Order. Discharger Discharger
