United States Section, International Boundary and Water Commission (USIBWC).
Notice of availability of the Revised Record of Decision for the Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement.
On September 30, 2005, the USIBWC issued a Record of Decision (“ROD”) which selected Alternative 4, Treatment Option C, Discharge Option 1 (Operation of SBIWTP as Advance Primary Facility, Secondary Treatment in Mexico) as the means for achieving CWA compliance at the SBIWTP. Reevaluation of alternatives for achieving compliance was prompted by the inability to timely implement the selected alternative and by changes in financial considerations relevant to the decision of whether to provide secondary treatment in Mexico or in the United States. After reevaluation, the USIBWC has decided to upgrade the SBIWTP to secondary treatment in the United States (Secondary Treatment in the United States, Alternative 5, Option B-2, Activated Sludge with Expanded Capacity) to achieve compliance with the CWA and the NPDES permit. This Revised Record of Decision reflects the results of the revaluation and was prepared in compliance with 40 CFR 1505.2.
The Revised ROD for the Final SEIS was made available to agencies, organizations and the general public on May 15, 2008. A copy of the Revised ROD for the Final SEIS was posted on the USIBWC Web site at http://www.ibwc.gov/Files/ROD_sbiwtp_2008.pdf.Start Further Info
