July 2017 UPDATE: Compliance with the General Agricultural Orders by Commercial Agricultural Operations

Located in Southwest Riverside County

The California Regional Water Quality Control Board, San Diego Region (RWQCB) sent notices out to commercial agricultural owners with a deadline of August 7th to be in compliance. The Riverside County Farm Bureau (RCFB) has received many emails and phone calls regarding this notice.

At the RCFB’s board meeting in June, the Upper Santa Margarita Irrigated Lands Group (USMILG) board requested that the RCFB assist in reforming and supporting that groups efforts to re-establish the USMILG. On a vote of 9-2 in favor of the USMILG’s request, the RCFB will move forward in supporting the USMILG’s board to re-establish its efforts to be the third-party group representing Riverside County growers in complying with the new order by the RWQCB.

During the week of July 10th, the RWQCB approved once again the USMILG as the third-party coalition for Riverside County growers. The RCFB and the USMILG have spoken with Mr. Barry Pulver at the RWQCB and has asked for an extension of the August 7th deadline. The RWQCB will not enforce their Ag Order until growers have had a chance to enroll in the USMILG. A new manager for the USMILG will be hired after July 26th.

Meanwhile, the USMILG will be seeking board replacements. If you wish to volunteer for the USMILG board, please email the RCFB with your name and contact information at president@riversidecfb.com.
