SECP Trainings

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.

SAWQA held two SECP trainings in September 2017, additional trainings may be hosted in the Winter 17-18.
