The Kings River Water Quality Coalition

Kings River Water Quality Coalition

The Kings River Watershed Coalition Authority (commonly known as the Kings River Water Quality Coalition) is a joint powers agency established by the irrigation districts in the Kings River service area. It is governed by a board of directors of landowners from each of the districts. Staffing of the Coalition is administered through an agreement with the Kings River Conservation District located in Fresno. The Coalition was formed in 2009 in order to provide growers within the region a cost-effective way to comply with the Central Valley Regional Water Quality Control Board regulations. The Coalition conducts regional monitoring and reporting and assists members in compliance with the regulations. The Coalition is not the regulatory or enforcement agency.

General Order

On September 19, 2013, the Central Valley Regional Water Quality Control Board (Regional Board) approved the Waste Discharge Requirements General Order for Growers within the Tulare Lake Basin Area. The General Order addresses the discharge of waste from irrigated lands to groundwater and surface water.  The requirements were subsequently revised on December 4, 2014; October 2, 2015; and February 9, 2016.

All irrigated lands within the Central Valley are now required to obtain regulatory coverage either through their Coalition or by getting an individual permit with the Regional Board.

  1. Join the Kings River Coalition
  2. Obtain an individual permit from the Regional Board

You do not need coverage if your agricultural lands are:

  • Not used for commercial purposes
  • Not irrigated
  • Covered by the General Order for Existing Milk Cow Dairies.

For more information on the General Order go to the Central Valley Regional Water Quality Control Board webpage by clicking here.

Coalition Reports

The Coalition is required to submit several reports to the Central Valley Water Board as part of the General Order Requirements.
