The San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District (District) issued a Special Advisory on August 3, 2015, reminding agricultural operators farming greater than 100 contiguous acres, having 500 or more mature dairy cows, or 190 or more of any other cattle that they are required to have and implement a Conservation Management Practices Plan (CMPP) with the District. The advisory also states that the CMPP must contain a plan to select and implement practices to limit dust emissions from unpaved roads and vehicle equipment traffic areas.
