WATER SOURCES FOR CANNABIS CULTIVATION

When applying for a commercial marijuana land use ordinance, the water source must comply with all State and Local law with the proper permits if needed. Typical water sources include rainwater collection, permitted water wells or water diversion/ withdrawal.

As cannabis cultivation becomes legalized in America, the water source for potential growers is becoming the top issue. California cultivation typically relies on water diversion that requires filing for water rights permits and strict regulations (link).

“Size and scope of an operation shall be such that the amount of water used shall not adversely impact water quality and/or beneficial uses, including and in consideration with other water use by operations, instream flow requirements and/or needs in the watershed, defined at the scale of a HUC-1220 watershed or at a smaller hydrologic watershed as determined necessary by the Regional Water Board Executive Officer.” (California Regional Water Quality Control Board North Coast Region)

Rainwater Collection

Rainwater collection for cannabis typically doesn’t require a water rights permit. There are only seven states with restrictions on how rainwater can be utilized including Colorado, Kansas, Nevada, North Carolina, Oregon, Utah, and, Washington.

Rainwater systems are designed to the application of the water so the cultivation production water use needs to satisfy the requirements for the permit that you are applying for.

Water Quality

The quality of water concerns the pH, potential hydrogen, and the presence of dissolved solids in water (measured in PPM Parts Per Million). Rainwater typically has a neutral pH naturally but water always needs to be tested before watering cannabis to prevent issues.

 

Pre-tank filtration is important for storing water long term, as well as having a sealed storage tank that both prevents contaminants from entering while having water movement to prevent stagnation.

Pioneer Water Tanks continual research and development for over 30-years stores water in the best conditions to keep water fresh and clean. The AQUALINER® Fresh tank liner inside of the Zincalume Steel tank body is BPA-free, NSF-61 certified for drinking water storage and is embedded with SANITIZED antimicrobial technology to prevent growth.

On top of our exclusive AQUALINER® Fresh tank liner, Pioneer Water Tanks include pest and dust protection with a sealed tank body. Our ventilation options provide an airing of the tank without hindering the sealed tank body.

A Fire & Life Safety Inspection is required before starting an operation even if there aren’t any more improvements to the property. If more water is needed in case of fire emergencies, the water source must have the necessary firefighting adapter and nozzles.
(Fire Department Requirements for Cannabis Cultivation)

Pioneer Water Tanks have accessory options for fire protection requirements, including anti-vortex fire department connections. Our fire protection packages have the option to include engineering for permitting where needed.
