Drinking Water Supply Well Survey – Help Needed!

Please help us by completing the three-question survey:


The CRC must provide information on the number of drinking water supply wells to the Central Valley Water Board. We are required to provide the number of wells by county – no names – no addresses – no APN numbers. This is a new requirement in the Rice WDR Order.

For questions or more information, please contact CRC Industry Affairs Manager Roberta Firoved at rfiroved@calrice.org or (916) 206-5039.

Drinking Water Well Testing

Reminder for each Grower to complete the required testing

The California Rice Commission’s Waste Discharge Requirement (WDR) requires, beginning in 2022, each grower (or landowner) to conduct annual testing for nitrates in all drinking water supply wells present on parcels where rice is produced. The results are reported from the analytical laboratory to the State’s GeoTracker database.
