Civic Center Septic Prohibition

On November 5, 2009, over the City's objections, the Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board (Regional Board) adopted Resolution R4-2009­-007 approving a basin plan amendment to Chapter IV of the Water Quality Control Plan for the Coastal Watersheds of Los Angeles and Ventura Counties, prohibiting onsite wastewater disposal systems in the Malibu Civic Center area.

In August 2011, a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the City of Malibu, the Regional Board and the State Water Resources Control Board was executed outlining Phased Implementation of the Basin Plan Amendment.

In December 2014, the City and Regional Board executed a Revised MOU, which establishes new timeframes for compliance with Phases 1 and 2.
