Thurs., Oct. 2, 1980 OUdlondi) THE SUK n"l Who's who from where on board Members of the Santa Ana Regional Water Quality Control Board represent a number of categories and geographical areas of the Santa Ana region. Its members are appointed by the governor and serve four-year terms. There is one vacancy on ihe board now. Board members and their appointment categories are: Margaret Chandler, of San Bernardino, water supply category. Chandler is chairman of the regional board. She is president of the San Bernardino Board of Water Commissioners, president of the Mt. Vernon Water Co. and vice president of the San Bernardino Water Utility Corp. Carolyn P.

The regional board is responsible for the drainage areas of the Santa Ana and San Jacinto rivers. Yucaipa. . . (Continued from B-l) tial investments in the lots caught up in the one-acre minimum lot size. Willis said the board's goal is "to help people avoid a pollution catastrophe down the road but avoid hurting people along the way." By refusing to extend the deadline and then suing persons or firms whose septic systems fail, pressure can be put on the district indirectly but there is considerable hardship. Board member Vilia Sherman said the board needs a way to move directly against the district. Instead it can only move against property owners in the prohibition area. But the water board is caught in the middle, too. It called for bids on the much-delayed project this spring and then delayed a decision because of the resulting controversy over the assessments and their criteria and to look at an alternate plant design and site. After the board confirmed the assessments in August, a lawsuit was filed by property owners in the assessment district. It has stopped the project at least until a Superior Court hearing Oct. 20. A recall effort also has been launched against three of the board members who voted for the project. At the regional board's hearing last month,- developer Richard Siegmund, of Sigland and Associates, told the board he is "very disappointed with the time schedule" and delay on the project. "It is a financial burden on people w ho own land and can't develop it," he said. Siegmund suggested the board "put as much pressure on the water district as possible," perhaps by moving to take the state and federal grants away. Edwin Kiefer, told the board he has a subdivision of half-acre lots ready to go on Oak Glen Road but is caught up in one-acre minimum requirement. Anderson said the staff's recommendation is to "grandfather" the Attachment A letters if the board extends the deadline for halting waste discharges. That way the Attachment A's still would be vaild and persons who have received them could continue with their projects. Kiefer said the Yucaipa water board has had a lot of personnel turnover. "They're trying to act but don't want to be pressured," he said. Tom McCann, another Yucaipa builder and landowner, suggested the regional board establish a schedule under which certain phases of the sewer project be done rather than just grant a time extension without conditions. What is needed, McCann said, is "a semblance of order" so people know whether they have to go to the expense of installing a septic tank or not w hen they build. Beverly Hall, whose family lives at 772 W. Avenue L in Calimesa, asked the board to remember the ''little people" when it considers the criteria for exemptions to the building prohibition. She said her family bought 2 Vis acres nine years ago, has borrowed money and made all necessary improvements. They had hoped to sell off two -acre lots but now cannot get an Attachment A. Stuart Lessmueller, 35550 Barbara Lane, told the board criteria for exemptions should be based on something other than lot size. He suggested some criteria to protect water quality could be drawn up which also would allow some multiple-unit building or building on small lots. Jim Secora, 34268 Avenue H, asked for an audit of the entire wastewater project. He also said the original environmental impact report did riot take into account if the community could afford the proposed project. "They're not giving us a Ford but a Rolls Royce," he said.

Peggy Baker, meet secretary, said 431 swimmers from 5 to 18 years old competed in the AAU-sanctioned event Saturday at the Redlands High School pool. "We thought it would be a good way to get the kids enthused about the fall swim program," Baker said this week. Swimmers from clubs in Redlands, San Bernardino, El Centro, Barstow, Riverside, Hacienda Heights, Upland, Walnut and Valencia competed. Some area clubs have not yet started workouts and most others have been working out only a couple of weeks, Baker said, but several teams registered their best times. Next year the club may schedule the meet in October or November so more clubs can participate, she said.
