Central Valley Water Board Timber Harvest Waiver for Activities on Federal and Non-Federal Lands

Order No. R5-2010-0022, Conditional Waiver of Waste Discharge Requirements for Discharges Related to Timber Harvest Activities is scheduled to expire March 2015. Staff is proposing to renew the Waiver at the Central Valley Water Board’s regular December 2014 meeting. This short-term renewal (3 years) will allow staff time to assess permitting needs for the new Working Forest Management Plan process that the California Board of Forestry is required by AB 904 to prepare and implement by January 2016. Further information can be found on the Tentative Orders page.

Order No. R5-2010-0022, 394 KB, PDF (PDF Info), Conditional Waiver of Waste Discharge Requirements for Discharges Related to Timber Harvest Activities, adopted 18 March 2010 and revised by the State Water Resources Control Board on 19 September 2011.
