Previously, the Regional Water Board created a deadline for irrigated lands owners and/or operators to join Coalition Groups. On 24 April 2008, the Regional Water Board adopted amendments to Order No. R5-2006-0053 (per Resolution No. R5-2008-0052) allowing all growers who wish to join a coalition group a limited opportunity to do so, pending approval of the Executive Officer and submission of any applicable administrative fee.

If growers do not obtain regulatory coverage for their waste discharges under a Coalition Group or Individual Irrigated Lands Conditional Waiver, they must file a Report of Waste Discharge and filing fee with the Regional Water Board office to obtain a grower-specific permit (also referred to as Waste Discharge Requirements). For additional information, please see the Regional Water Board Coalition Group Conditional Waiver page.
