Agricultural Discharges/"Ag Waiver" Monitoring

Quality Assurance Project Plan Development for the Coordinated Monitoring Program for Central Coast Agriculture Waiver Monitoring
As required under the Central Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board’s (CCRWQCB) Agriculture Waiver Program, a Quality Assurance Project Plan (QAPP) was required to be developed to address the waiver requirements for a Coordinated Monitoring Program for the Central Coast region. The Central Coast Wine Growers Association Foundation (CCWGAF) contracted PER to draft the QAPP. PER worked in close coordination with CCWGAF staff and with the CCRWQCB QA Officer to resolve both technical and programmatic issues to complete the QAPP.
