Document Description
The University Farm Project proposes to obtain an individual waste discharge permit for their Dairy operation located at the CSU, Chico, College of Agriculture-Agricultural Teaching and Research Center (University Farm) in Butte County, CA. The University Farm has been used as an instructional and research facility for the University since the early 1960's. In 2005, the University Farm began transitioning its conventional confinement Dairy operation to an organic, pasture-based program, completing their Organic Certification in March of 2007. During this transmission period in 2005, a request for Report of Waste Discharge (ROWD) was issued by the Central Valley Regional Water Quality Control Board (CVRWQCB) to all existing Dairy facilities for coverage under General Order No. R5-2007-0035. A ROWD for the University Farm was not received by October 17, 2005, and as result, the University Farm is required to seek coverage under a separate individual Waste Discharge Requirement (WDR). CSU Chico plans to pursue a Mitigated Negative Declaration for potential impacts to the environment. All appurtenance for the Dairy are in place.
