RWQCB approves responsibility transfer for Fallbrook Kamp Retreat

The Regional Water Quality Control Board (RWQCB) approved an addendum to the waste discharge requirements for the Fallbrook Kamp Retreat to reflect the ownership change of the DeLuz recreational vehicle park.

The RWQCB's September 8 approval transfers responsibility for compliance from Frederick W. Gorman and Laura L. Prutch to M&L Financial, Inc., which took over ownership of the RV park in May 2005 and re-opened it in 2009.

The permit allows the facility in the 41300 block of DeLuz Road to discharge domestic wastewater through its septic tank and subsurface leach field system. The waste discharge system also has two dump stations; one drains to the existing septic tank and the other is self-contained.

Fallbrook Kamp Retreat can accommodate up to 24 recreational vehicles. The facility also includes a two-bathroom house, a male restroom facility, and a female restroom facility.

M&L Financial, Inc., acquired the property at a foreclosure auction and had not been aware of the waste discharge requirements. The Regional Water Quality Control Board had not been able to contact Gorman and Prutch, who were the owners of record, and RWQCB inspections between 2005 and 2009 found that the park was closed until an August 2009 inspection revealed that the Fallbrook Kamp Retreat had been re-opened and was under new ownership.

The discharge requirements include a monitoring and reporting program, and the current management of Fallbrook Kamp Retreat intends to submit a report by January 31, 2011.
