Many members of the Sacramento/Amador Water Quality Alliance (SAWQA) are subject to the Sediment and Erosion Control Plan (SECP) Requirement under the Sacramento Valley Waste Discharge Order.
A SECP must be certified, irrigators can participate in a training to be able to self-certify. SAWQA is offering several trainings to assist irrigators in being able to self-certify their own plans.
