Facing an uprising of rural septic system users opposed to inspections and fees, the State Water Resources Control Board announced last week an extension of a comment period on proposed measures and postponement of a Feb. 9 Sacramento hearing until further notice. The State Water Board is extending the period to receive written comments on proposed fees, inspections and regulations of septic systems and wells to noon on Feb. 23. Comments must be submitted to: Mr. Todd Thompson, P.E., Division of Water Quality, State Water Resources Control Board, 1001 I St., P.O. Box 2231, Sacramento, CA 95812.
