Revided RWQCB Monitoring & Reporting Program (MRP) The RWQCB has approved the revisions to the MRP
portion of the Dairy General Order. Some changes include more waste application inspections, sample analysis and a regional
groundwater monitoring program. A copy of the revised MRP can be found on the RWQCB website.
The RWQCB started inspecting dairies covered under the Dairy General Order in 2009.
It is anticipated that all dairies covered under the Dairy General Order will have a compliance inspection within the next
five years. Recommendations from CDQAP for a successful inspection are to have
your records in order, key personnel should be available during inspection and have knowledge of records, and be polite.
If you would like assistance in getting ready for an inspection, contact Mike.
