Irrigated Lands Regulatory Program - Technical Issues Committee (TIC)

  • The TIC is a forum of individuals from coalition groups, growers, agencies and other interested parties to discuss and provide technical input on technical issues pertaining to monitoring and reporting activities required under the Irrigated Lands Regulatory Program. The TIC also provides an opportunity to share knowledge and consider new approaches. The goal of the TIC is to ensure that the monitoring programs use standardized procedures, that field and laboratory procedures are scientifically sound and defensible, and that water quality data are defensible when characterizing agricultural discharges and their effect on water quality. Within the TIC, focus groups have also been formed to consider the following topics: Triggers, Sediment Toxicity, Nutrients, and Bioassessment.

  • Monitoring Design Guidance for the Central Valley Irrigated Lands Regulatory Program, November 2007, 481 KB, PDF (PDF Info)
    A Monitoring Design Guidance document was developed by the Irrigated Lands Program Technical Issues Committee and SCCWRP to describe monitoring design principles and approaches for the development of a Coalition-specific Monitoring and Reporting Program Plan (MRP Plan). This guidance also includes flow diagrams that illustrate the decision-making steps that should be followed at various steps of developing and implementing the MRP Plan. Unlike the Tentative MRP Order for Coalition Groups, this document is non-regulatory and does not contain compliance requirements.
