The State Water Resources Control Board will hold a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Fee Workshop on December 8 from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. at the Cal EPA building, Sacramento, in Conference Room 350.  The workshop will explore the Board’s alternative options for assessing NPDES fees.  The workshop will be self directed by the NPDES stakeholder workgroup, but two Water Board staff members will be present to answer questions and provide background information and support to the workgroup.  For those who cannot attend, the conference number for this meeting is (916) 227-1132.
