Management Agency Agreement
Surface Water Interagency Process
The State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) and DPR have responsibilities to protect water quality from the potential adverse effects of pesticides. SWRCB and DPR signed a Management Agency Agreement (MAA) in 1997. The agreement, along with a companion implementation plan, was developed to coordinate interaction, facilitate communication, promote problem solving, and ultimately assure the protection of water quality. In 2003, additional guidance was developed to provide a framework to cooperatively respond to the presence of pesticides in surface water. An executive charter was developed in 2012 to improve communication at the management level.
