An applicant for a new well to serve new or expanded irrigated crop production in the PRGWB (excluding the Atascadero Sub-basin) must demonstrate that they have already met the requirements for new irrigated agriculture contained in the County’s Land Use Ordinance (Title 22 Section 22.30.304).  All new or existing wells that serve sites associated with an Agricultural Offset Clearance application must have a well meter installed and verified prior to final inspection.  No new or expanded irrigated agriculture shall occur until final inspection by the County Public Works Department has been completed.

Applicants for replacement agricultural wells or minor modifications to existing wells that are not proposed to serve new or expanded irrigated crop production may be exempt from Title 22 Section 22.30.304
