KBWQA Overview

The Kaweah Basin Water Quality Association (KBWQA) submitted an application to the Central Valley Regional Water Quality Control Board in order to serve as the third-party representing grower members in the Kaweah Basin under the General Order R5-2013-0120. On February 7, 2014, the KBWQA received a Notice of Applicability (NOA) from the Board, confirming the KBWQA as an approved third-party. Current member participation in the Kaweah River Sub-Watershed has been transitioned to the Kaweah Basin Water Quality Association.
