Farms in the Baylands Region are affected by an inundation of water from San Pablo Bay (identified by the map provided in Appendix B. For more detailed information about delineation of the Baylands contact us). Given the levee system that is currently in place, and the fact that these are tidally influenced estuarine areas with relatively flat topography, ONLY the following BMP will apply in these areas:
- The water table and surface water in the setback area must be managed in such a way that avoids erosion and pollution discharges to waterways. Additionally, any pesticide applications occurring within the setback must be in accordance with the pesticide’s registered label and all applicable laws and regulations.
