highbanking in the Plumas Eureka CA. district
Am I (my wife and I) required to get a permit to run and regular size highbanker in California? Can anyone tell who I need to contact to apply? I know it says water board but maybe a little more specific information for the Plumas - Eureka district if anybody has such department and phone numbers. It looks like a pretty big fine if you are found in violation. The way I read below it also outlaws highbankers. Thanks for your help.

You can discharge water and waste sediment from your highbanker or power
sluice to land but you must first apply for a permit from the Regional Water Board
responsible for the area where you’ll be mining. To apply for a permit, you must
file a Report of Waste Discharge with the Regional Water Board. You cannot
begin mining until the Regional Water Board approves your Report of Waste
Discharge and notifies you that either your permit has been issued or that a
permit is not required because the discharge will not create or threaten to create
a condition of pollution or nuisance. The minimum fee for the permit is $1120.00
but may be higher depending on the threat the discharge poses to water quality
and the complexity of the discharge as determined by the Regional Water Board.
See below for legal details.
