Title
Draft General Waste Discharge Requirements for Discharges from Irrigated Lands (Agricultural Order)
Description
The California Regional Water Quality Control Board, Central Coast Region (CCWB) is responsible for the protection of water quality in the central coast region. This region includes approximately 538,940 acres of irrigated farmland in nine counties, representing one of the most productive agricultural regions in the state and the country. CCWB currently regulates discharges from irrigated agriculture under its Irrigated Lands Regulatory Program, using a permit called a Conditional Waiver of Waste Discharge Requirements (WDRs) that applies to owners and operators of irrigated land throughout the region used for commercial crop production. The Proposed Project would include the issuance of a permit regulating discharges from irrigated lands and the activities that would result from compliance with such a permit. The Proposed Project would replace the existing permit regulating agricultural discharges that are established under Agricultural Order 3.0. The Proposed Project would establish Agricultural Order 4.0. [See also "Project Description" in DEIR for more information.]
