DPR 18-001 Ground Water Protection Areas (Noticed 5/25/18; Comment period closed 8/7/18)

DPR amended section 6000 of Title 3, California Code of Regulations. This action amends the document, "EH03-05 (Est. 08/03) Ground Water Protection Areas” that identifies ground water protection areas (GWPAs) in California. DPR added new GWPAs to this document. These GWPAs were identified based on pesticide detections. This document is incorporated by reference in the definitions "ground water protection area", "leaching ground water protection areas", and "runoff ground water protection areas." These regulations were filed with the Secretary of State on June 20, 2019, and become effective on January 1, 2020.
