Forms to Obtain Regulatory Coverage

  • Apply to join a Coalition Group - The coalition groups work directly with their member growers to assist in complying with requirements by conducting monitoring and preparing regional plans to address water quality problems.
  • Obtain Coverage under Individual Waste Discharge Requirements - This option is for dischargers who wish to obtain regulatory coverage under the Waste Discharge Requirements General Order for Discharges from Irrigated Lands within the Central Valley Region for Dischargers not Participating in a Third-party Group.

Templates

Under the Waste Discharge Requirements, growers are required to prepare farm plans. Templates approved for Farm Evaluation, Nitrogen Management Plan, Nitrogen Management Plan Summary Report, and Sediment and Erosion Control Plan will be posted here once available.
