Senior Engineering Geologist
Central Valley Regional Water Quality Control Board
Griffin Perea, P.G. - I am a Senior Engineering Geolgoist with the Central Valley Regional Water Quality Control Board tasked with overseeing the Cannabis Program. I obtained my B.S. in Geology from Chico State University in the Spring of 2009, after which I obtained a position with a small environmental consulting firm in the Chico area working mostly on issues surrounding underground storage tanks. After working in private consulting I moved to Sacramento for a position with the Bureau of Reclamation in the Design and Construction Division. At my time with the Bureau I was involoved with documenting all phases of large scale construction projects on the Federal Central Valley Project, including overseeing drilling operations and large scale excavations. In 2013 I gained employment with the Central Valley Water Board, in the Redding office. Once at the Central Valley Board I immediatly began working within the Forest Activities Program, which deals with non-point source waste discharge issues from timber harvest operations. From the Forest Activities Program I transitioned into the newly created Cannabis Regulatory Program and began conducting both permitting and enforcement activities related to waste discharges from cannabis cultivation sites. In 2016 I became a Senior Engineering Geologist in the Cannabis Program and was tasked with managing the Cannabis Program for the Central Valley Regional Water Quality Control Board.
