The WQ/Technical Committee passed the following resolutions to be presented at the April CAG meeting. The resolutions were held over from the April and May meetings due to the prioritization of other business.


April 2016 #1:

To the EPA:

The CAG calls upon the EPA to develop a design solution at the head of the canal which guarantees there is no loss of the vital resource of marine habitat in this area, as a result of the imposition or construction of the “engineered shoreline,” or bulkhead.


April 2016 #2

To the EPA:

The CAG urges the EPA to develop design solutions that include surface treatment of canal-edge surfaces that are supportive of marine life.
