Project Description: CV-SALTS implemented this study to identify water quality criteria that may be used to establish salinity and nitrate-related water quality objectives to protect stock watering supplies in the Central Valley. This study was completed through the completion of research on the following information sources: (a) water quality objectives established in other regions of California or in other selected states; (b) review of U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recommendations; (c) university extension publications and specialists; (d) published peer-reviewed literature; and (e) selected international agencies. The final report provides recommendations for protection of stock watering sources which will be used to support development of a Salt/Nutrient Management Plan for the Central Valley.
