Rice WDR Drinking Water Well Monitoring

The Drinking Water Well Monitoring website has updated its list of certified analytical laboratories as of January 12, 2023, which can now be found here.  Each drinking water well in use on a rice parcel must be sampled for nitrate + nitrite as nitrogen annually, unless you submit three consecutive years with results below 8 milligrams per liter (mg/L) or if your results are greater than 10 mg/L and both the drinking water well users and the Central Valley Water Board are notified.
