Dr. Deanne Meyer was recently awarded the North Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board’s 2019 Water Quality Stewardship Award for her leadership in advancing the science and practice of pasture-based dairy operations on the North Coast.

Through CDQAP, Meyer and a team of partners have provided ongoing classes and support to North Coast dairy producers, as they have worked to comply with changing water quality regulations. Her leadership and hard work were invaluable in helping producers understand the regulations, develop required monitoring plans, and implement water quality protection practices. We are pleased to see that Deanne’s efforts have been recognized, along with the overall improvements that North Coast dairy producers have made in environmental stewardship.
