June 8, 2018 – -Last week the Central Valley Regional Water Quality Control Board approved on a 5-0 vote a package of proposed amendments to the Central Valley Water Quality Control Board’s Water Quality Control Plan.

More than 10 years in the making, the proposed regulatory changes are joint recommendations of a large stakeholder group, known as CV-SALTS (www.cvsalinity.org), which includes agricultural representatives, food processors, cities and other water users. CV Salts water quality regulations were developed as part of a long-term plan to assure safe drinking water for the Valley’s residents, while protecting Valley agriculture from an increasing trend of salt buildup in soils and groundwater.

The approved regulations will next be considered by the State Water Resources Control Board.
