Farm Evaluation/Nitrogen Management Plan Reporting moves to every five years

Farm Evaluation/Nitrogen Management Plan Reporting moves to every five years

The requirement to complete the Rice Waste Discharge Requirements (WDR) Farm Evaluation and Nitrogen Management Plan moves to once every five years. This means you will report the 2022 crop information in 2023. The calricenews.org website currently reflects the change in reporting requirements. We will provide reminders as the reporting date approaches.

These dates coincide with previous amendments to the East San Joaquin Coalition’s WDR Order. Several of the resulting amendments became effective to all WDR Orders in Region 5 of Central Valley Water Board. The effective start date was in 2018, and formalized with an amendment to the Rice WDR Order in 2019. We were well into the 2018 crop reporting cycle when the amendment became effective.
