Document Description
The primary purpose of the Shasta River Watershed-wide Permitting Program (Program) is to facilitate compliance by Program participants with Fish and Game Code section 1600 et seq. and, with respect to coho salmon, the California Endangered Species Act (CESA) (Fish and Game Code, section 2050 et seq.) while conducting specific routine agricultural activities the Program covers. The Program area is the Shasta River watershed, including the Shasta River and its tributaries, in Siskiyou County. Farmers and ranchers in the Program area may participate in the Program. Other participants include the Shasta Valley Resource Conservation District and the Department of Water Resources (DWR). DWR will participate in the Program because it provides watermaster service in the Program aea, and as part of that responsibility delivers water to farmers and ranchers.
