New Membership Form
Notice of Confirmation (NOC) Form
As part of the new Waste Discharge Order, all members are required to complete and sign a one time Notice of Confirmation (NOC) to join the Irrigated Lands Program and also complete and sign a Farm Evaluation Plan (FEP) annually. These plans must be returned to PNSSNS to be in compliance but please keep a copy for your records. The FEPs stay with PNSSNS. If members are ever contacted by the Regional Water Board, as part of your membership, you can contact PNSSNS for assistance.
Farm Evaluation Plan --> Next Due 2021
The Farm Evaluation is due to PNSSNS every 5 years.
Nitrogen Management Plan --> New Form 2020
Nitrogen forms are to be completed annually and kept onsite unless otherwise informed.
Annually, all members are required to complete a NITROGEN MANAGEMENT PLAN which records nitrogen applied and the crop yield at the end of the growing season, Please keep these plans in our files.
IIf we have contacted you and you are in a High Vulnerability Area (HVA), then you must submit this data to the PNSSNS office via email or mail at the end of the growing season using the Nitrogen Management Plan Summary Report.
Sediment and Erosion Control Plan
Starting in 2018, the completed SECP forms are to be kept onsite.
Template and instructions:
PNSSNS is highly encouraging all members to complete a Sediment and Erision Control Plan (SECP). Members can "self-certify" their sediment plans by completing the NEW online course found at Irrigating Lands Regulatory Program (IRLP) Grower Self-Certification Training.
Once the short online course is completed, there is a short test and a certificate will be awarded when you pass the test. Please print out the certificate for your records to demonstrate your "self-certification" for your Sediment and Erosion Control Plan. There are professionals that can also complete the Sediment and Erosion Control Plans for you and your operation. Applied Engineering and Geology (AEG), whose owner is also a member of PNSSNS, can assist you among other professionals.
The Regional Water Board is actively looking for those not in compliance and sending fine letters to those people that have not joined or are not in compliance with the Waste Discharge Order. PNSSNS provides education and outreach for best management practices with irrigation, pesticide and nutrient applications in order to minimize soil erosion and to continue to protect water quality.
Contact PNSSNS if you have any questions: email@example.com or 916-645-1774
