In response to requests from the Mono Lake Kutzadika Tribe and the Bridgeport Indian Colony, the Lahontan Region Water Quality Control Board is proposing to amend the Water Quality Control Plan for the Lahontan Region to designate Tribal Beneficial Uses to waterbodies in the Mono Basin, which is located near the community of Lee Vining in Mono County.


The Board will hold a public hearing on April 18, in Barstow, California. No action by the Lahontan Water Board will be taken at the public hearing, which is solely to receive public comment on the draft Staff Report.
