General Permit for Vineyard Properties in the Napa River and Sonoma Creek Watersheds
Owners or operators of Vineyard Properties (located in the two watersheds) discharging, or proposing to discharge waste from a Vineyard Property are “dischargers.” The General permit will regulate discharges from vineyard properties that meet specific criteria.
Water Board staff prepared a report for the workshop consisting of a summary of comment letters from the public and the staff’s responses to the comments. The staff report also briefly describes the actions required to control discharges which include sediment and storm runoff from vineyards, unpaved roads located on the vineyard properties, pesticides and nutrients.
For complete information on the Napa River and Sonoma Creek Vineyard Program, including the draft General Permit and Draft EIR, visit the Water Board’s website.
