CV-SALTS – How Does It Effect Your Agency?

“Nitrates in the Groundwater:The Issue” is a 4:26 minute video that takes the viewer through the highlights of the nitrate challenge and new, upcoming regulatory approach for the Central Valley. The CV-SALTS initiative is explained as a group of regulators, farmers, and others that have worked together over the last decade to try to keep generations of farmers in business while protecting water quality. We need to address the problem. New regulations are coming that will offer two options – meet the drinking water standard at the point of discharge (traditional permitting) or a new option – form a local or regional Management Zone to work collectively to first solve the drinking water problem. Management Zones offer a more flexible way to comply.
