GSA AND MCFB TO HOLD JOINT WATER COMMITTEE MEETING on WASTE DISCHARGE VS. AG ORDER Differentiation

February 13, 2014

Waste Discharge Requirement vs. Ag Order Differentiation on Feb. 25th

 

 

Conversations about how the 2017 Irrigated Lands Regulatory program might evolve are expected to begin later this year. To prepare our members and to gain valuable input on next steps, the Grower-Shipper Association of Central California and Monterey County Farm Bureau have asked Gail Delihant (Western Growers) and Danny Merkley (California Farm Bureau Federation) to join us at a joint water committee meeting to discuss the difference between a Waste Discharge Requirement and an Ag Order (see handout prepared by Tess Dunham here). At this meeting, they will provide examples of successful WDR programs, explain the costs and expectations of such an alternative, go over pros and cons, and be available to answer questions.
