Dear Mr. Genter:

I would like to take this opportunity to respond to your letter of October 5, 1999, regarding Enforcement Advisory Council (EAC) Resolutions 99-05, 99-06, 99-07, and 99-08.

Resolution 99-05

On September 22, 1999, the Board voted 4-0 to deny the proposed Construction and Demolition/Inert Debris regulations. Before developing a new draft, the Board will conduct further discussions with the State Water Resources Control Board, the Department of Conservation and other stakeholders. Based on this decision, staff will begin informal workshops with all interested parties. No workshops are scheduled at this time. Staff will inform LEAs, as well as other interested parties, when the workshops are scheduled. This forum will provide ample opportunity for input from all parties.

Resolution 99-06

I agree with your proposal to have LEA Round Table representatives and/or LEA TAC representatives collect compost test data and complaint information on green waste composting, chipping and grinding, and mulch operations. This data will provide the organic materials workgroup with valuable information that can be used to help develop the draft regulation package. 

Resolution 99-07

While this resolution is directed towards the CCDEH Solid Waste Policy Committee, I agree with the EAC proposal to ask CCDEH to send a letter to the directors of LEA programs that encourage direct internet access for all LEA staff. In the future, the internet will be the basis for electronic transfer of documents such as inspection reports. We believe internet access will be necessary for LEAs to maintain a current, accurate and comprehensive program.

Resolution 99-08

Permitting and Inspection Branch staff have been assigned to work on the CEQA issues that were identified and discussed at the 1999 Granlibakken Conference. This project is in the formative stage and as more information becomes available staff will work with both the EAC and CCDEH to develop a working relationship to pursue resolution of these issues. In addition, we intend to include LEA information in a chapter of a revised version of the Permit Desk Manual. We will be discussing this issue further at upcoming CCDEH and EAC meetings.

Thank you for bringing this information to my attention. I look forward to continuing to work on these issues of mutual concern with the LEAs, Round Tables, CCDEH and EAC.
