Document Description
On January 20, 2020 the State Water Resources Control Board adopted a resolution for the CEQA Mitigated Negative Declaration for the General Waste Discharge Requirements for Winery Process Water and associated General Order. The General Order covers discharges to land of winery process water The General Order will cover discharges of winery process water to land starting at 10,000 gallons per year and can cover larger discharges (e.g., 100,000,000 gallons per year). The General Order includes minimum treatment levels, monitoring, and management practices based on the number of gallons of winery process water discharged per year. The General Order also requires compliance with regional water quality control board water quality control plans (Basin Plans), applicable statewide water quality plans or policies, and mitigation measures required by this General Order and future site-specific CEQA evaluations. The General Order will be used by the regional water quality boards to streamline permitting of wineries discharging process water to land and increase water quality protection from these discharges statewide. The General Order was publicly noticed July 3, 2020 for a public comment period ending August 5, 2020 and a public period on the SCH from July 24-August 24, 2020.
