Regional Board: Wineries Require Stormwater Permit

The California Farm Bureau Federation, California Wine Institute, Family Winemakers of California, California Association of Winegrape Growers and others have developed the attached two-page guidance document to help our members understand the new Stormwater permitting requirements put on small wineries, food processors and others. The document focus is geared towards winery operations, but should assist other food processing operations and is intended to offer assistance in complying with these requirements that are new to many of our small wineries and processors. 
This two-page guidance document was also mailed recently to a list of wineries obtained from a winery publication.

​**This program should not be confused with the Irrigated Lands Regulatory Program, which is a program developed by the regional water quality control boards to address runoff from agricultural irrigation practices.**
