TARGET:   California State Water Resources Control Board

Approve the Basin Plan amendment adopted under the Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board Resoultion No. R4-2009-007 – phasing out existing and prohibiting new septic systems in the Malibu Civic Center area.

Surfrider Beach is a crown jewel of surfing, an iconic beach, and the birthplace of the California beach lifestyle. Unfortunately, Surfrider is also one of the state’s most polluted beaches, receiving poor water quality grades in the Beach Report Card every year for nearly two decades.

Dear Chair Hoppin and California State Water Resources Control Board Members;

Over a million people visit Surfrider Beach annually, and beach-goers have spent decades recreating in polluted waters with major health consequences.

It has been scientifically demonstrated that commercial and residential septic tanks in the Malibu Civic Center area are a major source of pollutants into the Lower Malibu Creek, Malibu Lagoon, and ultimately Surfrider Beach.

A prohibition on new septics and phase-out of current septics in the Civic Center area is a critical step towards improving water quality at Malibu Lagoon and Surfrider Beach to protect human health and aquatic life.

We therefore urge the California State Water Resources Control Board to support the Basin Plan amendment adopted under RWQCB Resolution No. R4-2009-007 – which would phase out existing and prohibit new septic systems in the Malibu Civic Center area.

Thank you for your consideration.
