Note: Subpart E -- Agricultural Water is published in the Federal Register as part of the Produce Safety Rule. However, it is currently under review and compliance dates have been delayed. It is currently unenforceable while the enforcement discretion is in effect. The delayed compliance dates are below.

In the meantime, farmers should get to know the water quality profile of their agricultural water sources, and should start assessing their water distribution systems to make sure the system itself isn’t a potential source of contamination.
