Drinking Well Testing Requirements

Monitoring Drinking Water Wells on Agricultural Parcels

In accordance with Waste Discharge Requirements for Coachella Valley, growers are required to monitor their on-farm drinking water wells. This is to identify wells that have nitrate concentrations exceeding the drinking water standard and to notify well users of the potential for human health risks. For questions regarding this monitoring, please contact Regional Water Board at Phone: 760-346-7491 or email RB7-Ag_Order@waterboards.ca.gov
