San Diego Region Irrigated Lands Group
Administered by the San Diego County Farm Bureau
Growers Working Together to Comply With
Clean Water Regulations
Regulations adopted by the Regional Water Quality Control Board require all agricultural and nursery operations in the San Diego region to sample and test wet and dry weather runoff for pollutants and report the findings.
The regulations allow for two options:
- Conduct the testing and reporting as a group
- OR -
- Act individually to submit plans and testing results directly to the Regional Board
The San Diego County Farm Bureau is providing members with the collective testing and reporting option through the San Diego Region Irrigated Lands Group (SDRILG).

In addition to enrolling in a monitoring group the Ag Waiver carries a requirement for each operator to complete two hours of water quality management related training per year. The University of California Cooperative Extension Service has taken on the task of providing the training. The schedule of classes for this year is listed below. To reserve your spot in a class, please call (760) 745-2215 or email firstname.lastname@example.org .
2014 Water Class Schedule
Due to the fact that Waiver No. 4 is not in effect at this time, the water classes will not be required until the General Water Discharge Requirement goes into effect sometime in mid-2015. For this reason we will be cancelling the water classes for the remainder of the year and start them up again once the General Water Discharge Requirement goes into effect.
