Description

Join the CCOF Foundation on February 18 for a webinar to review the Irrigated Lands Regulatory Program’s water quality requirements for organic growers and ranchers on California’s Central Coast – known as the “Ag Orders.”

Do you farm on the Central Coast of California? Have you heard about the water quality Ag Orders? Did you know that the Ag Orders apply to organic farmers as well as conventional? Join CCOF, the Central Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board, and the Resource Conservation District of Monterey County for a comprehensive overview of the Central Coast Ag Order.

In fall 2014, the Central Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board, along with the other eight California Regional Water Quality Control Boards, began enforcing the Irrigated Lands Regulatory Program by issuing “Ag Orders.” All landowners in California who manage commercial irrigated property—including row crops, irrigated pasture, and greenhouses and nurseries—are subject to the Ag Orders from their Regional Water Quality Control Board.

Each regional board has set up different compliance requirements. The Central Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board established a tier-based system that classifies level of regulation by chemical usage, proximity to an impaired water body, and type of crop grown.

Get your questions answered in this informational webinar, specifically tailored to organic producers. Join CCOF, Elaine Shall from the Central Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board (Region #3), and Ben Burgoa from the Resource Conservation District of Monterey County for a webinar that covers a comprehensive overview of the Central Coast Ag Order. Learn more about Ag Order registration and compliance requirements. The webinar will also include explanation of the Central Coast’s tier-based regulation system. You’ll also learn about resources available for farmers and ranchers to address water quality issues on their operations.
