About 98% of irrigated agricultural operators and acreage are already enrolled in Preservation, Inc.’s Surface Water Cooperative Monitoring Program (or CMP). If you are a grower reading this, you are very likely already enrolled for calendar year 2023. In other words, you are probably already a Third Party member for the purposes of Surface Water monitoring and reporting.
Preservation, Inc.’s new Third Party programs for Groundwater Monitoring and Irrigation/Nutrient Management began in 2022. To enroll, simply pay (on time) the invoice that we sent via US Mail around December 20th of last year (2022). Payment is due no later than January 20th, 2023.
If you brought your account current after receiving this email, we have moved you to our “Good Standing” list. To remain a “Member in Good Standing,” simply pay your invoice by January 20th, 2023. To re-join the program after falling out of good standing, please contact us.
Please visit our “Fees” and “Member Responsibilities” pages to learn more about 2023 program costs and member obligations.
To enroll Preservation, Inc’s Third Party programs, you must first be enrolled in the Central Coast Water Board’s Agricultural Order (also called the Irrigated Lands Regulatory Program, or ILRP). The “ILRP Enrollment Page” button below will take you to the Water Board’s enrollment site. The enrollment form is also called the eNOI (Electronic Notice Of Intent). Upon successful enrollment, the Water Board will provide you with two types of identifying numbers:
You will need your AW Number, and the Global IDs (AGL Numbers) for all ranches that you operate, in order to enroll in Preservation, Inc’s Third Party programs. Again, these numbers are issued by the Water Board when you enroll in the ILRP.
The Central Coast Water Board requires growers to update their eNOI information within 60 days of any changes to that information. This year (2021), they also issued a requirement for ALL growers to update their eNOI by September 13th.
Note: If you are already enrolled in the ILRP but have forgotten your GeoTracker password, please click “Have a password reset link emailed to you.” Do NOT click the “Password Request” link, as this is only for brand new enrollments.
