Ag Is Exempt From Governor's Water Restrictions

The State Water Resources Control Board (SWRDCB) has indeed exempted all California agriculture from the Governor's water restrictions IF the local water district chooses to administer the exemption.  OMWD has chosen to administer the ag exemption, and the SFID board will vote at their Thursday June 18th board meeting (beginning at 8:30 am) whether or not to administer the ag exemption in their district.  If you are in the SFID feel free to contact your water district representative to make sure they are in favor of the ag exemption.

Each owner will have to fill out a simple certification application in order to be included in your district's ag exemption.  This certification application will give you instructions on information you must provide to the district to qualify for your ag exemption.  Most likely they will ask for proof of product sales.  We will also try to get a copy of this certification application and make it available to you as well.   The application is time sensitive because the districts have to report their ag exemption total to the SWRCB by July 15, so make sure you return the form in a timely manner.
