Why Attend?

In late May 2020, Notices to Comply were sent to permittees in high-priority areas where implementation will begin immediately. These areas include six Central Valley subbasins: Kaweah, Turlock, Chowchilla, Tule, Modesto, and Kings.

Consultants will be critical in assisting permitted dischargers complying with new nitrate control permit requirements.
