Because recycled water can contribute salts and nutrients to groundwater, the Recycled Water Policy requires local entities to develop a Salt and Nutrient Management Plan (SNMP) to support streamlined permitting of new recycled water projects while managing salts and nutrients basin-wide. This SNMP for the Santa Clara Groundwater Subbasin was prepared by the Santa Clara Valley Water District (District) with input from stakeholders, including the San Francisco Bay Regional Water Quality Control Board, Santa Clara County, water retailers and recycled water producers, the farm bureau, and interested stakeholders such as environmental groups. "The purpose of this SNMP is to comply with the [SWRCB] Recycled Water Policy by: Evaluating all sources of salt and nutrient loading to the Santa Clara Subbasin, Determining whether current and projected salt and nutrient concentrations are consistent with applicable WQOs, Developing recycled water and stormwater goals and objectives, Providing a plan for long-term groundwater monitoring, and Identifying sustainable measures to manage salt and nutrient loading to groundwater." -- Executive summary. 1.
