    The 2013 Irrigated Lands Regulatory Program (ILRP) schedule for our UFRWG coalition will depend on the outcome
of the new
Sacramento Valley Coalition Agricultural  Waste Discharge Requirement (WDR) currently being drafted by the
Regional Board Staff working with Sacramento Valley Coalition representatives.
 UFRWG is a subcoalition of Sacramento
Valley Water Quality Coalition (SVWQC).  UFRWG is one of several upper watershed coalitions anticipating a low-
vulnerability rating with an option for a Management Practices Implementation Documentation option to reduce or replace
water sampling and monitoring.


    Landowner surveys, farm evaluations, erosion control plans, or nitrogen budgets, as well as educational field days
and workshops may become part of the long term Irrigated Lands Program for our Upper Feather River Group.

    The UFRWG Board of Directors will be reviewing new program details and options as they become available from the
Sac Valley Coalition and the Regional
Water Control Board.
      Please join us in local meetings to review and discuss the options that may become available to our members.
