Voluntary Clean Water Guidance for Agriculture Draft comment period

Ecology invites the public to comment on Volume 1: Cropping Methods: Tillage and Residue Management of the Voluntary Clean Water Guidance for Agriculture. The guidance is a technical resource for agricultural producers that describes Ecology’s recommended best management practices (BMPs) to protect water quality. The goal of this guidance is to support healthy farms and help farmers meet clean water quality standards. We plan to release 12 subsequent volumes of this guidance over the next 2-3 years to give agricultural producers a comprehensive set of BMPs for protecting water quality. Each volume will have a 30-day public comment period. To develop this guidance, Ecology worked closely with the Agriculture and Water Quality Advisory Committee and its partners.
