The RWQCB is extending the expiration date for the current Ag Order 3.0 to January 31, 2021. The new date is by court order, and all enrolled operations should be receiving a notice soon to this effect. Current general Ag Order 3.0 requirements, including surface water monitoring (CMP and individual) will remain in effect for the life of 3.0. There will NOT be another required round of well monitoring, and there will be no additional reporting required of Tier 3 ranches for their Water Quality Buffer Plans nor INMPs. Individual discharge monitoring and reporting requirements for surface water will continue, however.
