Welcome to the WATER BOARDS CANNABIS CULTIVATION PROGRAMS PORTAL!
New! Division of Water Rights - Cannabis Compliance Response Portal
The Cannabis Compliance Response Portal was developed by the State Water Board Division of Water Rights for individuals who were recently contacted by the State Water Board regarding cannabis cultivation activities. The Portal allows individuals to provide information in response to a notice received and potentially avoid additional monetary penalties for continued non-compliance. If you have not received a notice of violation from the Division of Water Rights you are not required to fill out this survey.
