Addressing Elevated Salinity and Nitrate Problems
in the Central Valley
JJ&A’s presentation on CV-SALTS, addressed elevated salinity and nitrate problems in the Central Valley, and was well received by the California League of Food Producers. JJ&A’s Terry James, Linda Mercurio, and Leon Gearhart provided an overview of salt and nitrate permitting approaches and challenges as well as a review of JJ&A projects relevant to this issue and how they can affect food producers. JJ&A’s approach for achieving regulatory solutions for a food producer with nitrate impacts in their groundwater and the proactive mitigation for a municipality in the Central Valley with nitrate impacts in their municipal drinking water supply were highlighted. And finally, because addressing salinity and nitrate issues can have a significant cost, funding opportunities through grants were discussed.
