An Aug. 20 workshop is scheduled in Fresno to discuss new water regulations affecting medical cannabis growers.
The workshop is at the Fresno office of the Central Valley Regional Water Quality Control Board. (Event link, map.) The new rules will require large-scale growers to obtain a permit, or “discharge waiver,” showing compliance with state and local regulations. The rules are designed to address environmental impacts for reported problems that include water diversions and sediment discharges in sensitive watersheds.
