How to Comply with the IRLP
Under the authority of the Regional Water Quality Control Board the Irrigated Lands Regulatory Program regulates farmland discharges to surface and ground waters of the state.
California Citrus Mutual is actively involved in the development of reporting requirements and procedures that provide assurances to the regulators that practices are protective of surface and ground water, while at the same time are practical and reasonable for growers to comply with.
Growers who choose not to create their own waste discharge plan and deal directly with the Regional Water Quality Control Board may comply by joining a Third Party Coalition within the Kings, Kaweah, Tule and Kern watershed.
