D.    GENERAL BUSINESS

  1. Review of GGNRA Restrooms and Septic System Proposal: The Board and GGNRA representatives discussed information pertaining to the GGNRA park restroom locations, the proposed wastewater facilities, historical information, system capacity, and sampling. GGNRA Representative Nancy Horner gave a brief summary regarding the concerted effort to bridge ties between the NPS and SBCWD. She stated that the NPS was willing to work with SBCWD regarding septic issues, the barn storage facility, the communications situation, and other concerns. She scheduled a tentative meeting date on September 30, 2003 to discuss the aforementioned items. District Staff directed questions to GGNRA representatives regarding the Easkoot Creek EAS. Staff further asked pertinent questions about exemption from the State Regional Water Quality Control Board (regarding a discharge permit without improvements to the septic system), why some District information wasn't used in the report to verify rainfall and creek monitoring, and how improvements to the creek were going to effect the Bolinas Lagoon or surrounding properties. Ms. Karen Cantwell, GGNRA Environmental Specialist, informed the District that the Environmental Assessment for the proposed restroom was to be separate from the Easkoot Creek EAS and that mention of the relocation of the central restroom was merely to address an upcoming project. Several questions addressed to the NPS representatives regarding the operation of the system, its capacity, actual location, and components could not be answered. The District requested that the NPS submit plans of the existing on-site wastewater facilities of the three areas including the cabins. The NPS agreed to send the District the system plans prior to the Setpember meeting. Ms. Cantwell stated as soon as the draft Environmental Study was complete for the restroom facilities she would forward for our review.
