The Kings River Water Quality Coalition is the agency administering the Irrigated Lands Regulatory Program (ILRP) for the Kings River Service Area. The Tulare Lake Basin General Order, which includes the Kings River Service Area, inclusive of discharges to groundwater, was adopted by the Regional Water Quality Control Board on September 19, 2013. In the Kings River Service Area, Landowners will have until May 19, 2014 to enroll in the new program that enables the Coalition to administer the regulatory program related to agricultural discharges to groundwater rather than each Landowner having to administer waste discharge requirements. There is a membership fee and a fee per irrigated agricultural acreage (see attached fee schedule and sign up form). For questions, Landowners should call KRCD at 559-365-7958.
