North Coast Water Board Sets Series Of Meetings On Cannabis Program

Sacramento, CA...The North Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board (Board) has announced a series of informational meetings for cannabis cultivators who fall under the Board’s Cannabis Cultivation Waste Discharge Regulatory Program, which was first implemented last year. The meetings are designed to answer questions from cultivators on the program and its enrollment directive letters, and will include both staff presentations and group Q&A sessions to help growers covered under the program understand the requirements.



The Board developed the program to monitor and mitigate discharges of pesticides or other harmful pollutants into headwaters and river systems. RCRC supported the program when it was developed in 2015 due to the potential adverse impacts cannabis cultivation could pose to water quality and wildlife habitat in RCRC member counties. Cultivators with grows of 2000 square feet or more were required to enroll in the program as of February 15, 2016.

Cannabis Cultivation Waste Discharge Regulatory Program?
Just wondering, do they have a Grape Vineyard Cultivation Waste Discharge Regulatory Program? I don't use and pesticides on my family garden, but I do use fertilizer and an occasional herbicide around the garden, will a Habanero Cultivation Waste Discharge Regulatory Program be a new regulation I have to worry about? Those habaneros are pretty dang dangerous if you do not handle them with care. I swear I thought I was going to go blind one afternoon last year when I touched one of my eyes. A lesson learned after a lot of tears were spilled.
I feel kind of sorry for some of those dirt bag, drug pushers, what ever you want to call them (I do know one, a real nice person) yet many more tears have been spilt over the health hazards, injuries and deaths caused by the by-products of our local vineyards, alcohol.

"...do they have a Grape Vineyard Cultivation Waste Discharge Regulatory Program?"

Of course they do. Is there anything the state of Commiefornia doesn't oversee, monitor, and regulate? Except for illegal aliens.

I suspect most if not all Calaveras County growers did not register since they would not even be known to this group as of 2/15/2016.
Registration here was not done by that date.

      He was crawling down to this story's comment section, and by the looks of things, has successfully made it.

    Part of applying for a permit here was getting a discharge permit from the Water Board.

      Was part of the permit process to ensure that all property taxes were paid and current on the parcels on which this rotten weed was to be grown? The damn stuff is no good and should be outlawed.

        That would make sense, current on property taxes. Also makes sense to require permanent residences on property, not just a RV park and they dump literally more crap into the earth. BOS, this is a no-brainer, multiple RV's all over the place, they have no real roots in this county, just a place to make quick money. By the way, is the market flooded with product yet, oh well, lets just sell it to the kids then!!! Has anyone mailed the list of grower/dealers to the IRS yet? Sounds like a winner to me, county needs money, Feds need money, who cares if it's dirty, right?
