The State Water Resources Control Board will hold a hearing in San Luis Obispo on Friday to get input on its proposed grazing regulatory action project.
The hearing will run from 9 a.m. to noon Friday at the offices of the Central Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board, 895 Aerovista Place, Suite 101. The meeting is described as a “focused listening session,” and the program is intended to ensure that grazing has minimal effects on water quality in the state.
The agency wants to hear from five key groups: ranchers, government agencies, tribes, environmental groups and the academic community. Topics to be covered include the definition of grazing, what a successful program would look like, effective water quality monitoring and extreme conditions that should be considered.
