Regional Water Authority has developed an Integrated Regional Water Management Plan (IRWMP) and
associated tools to identify the regional projects and partnerships that will help the
region best meet its future water resources needs.
What is an IRWMP?
According to the California Department of Water Resources, an Integrated Regional
Water Management Plan (IRMWP) is a comprehensive planning document to encourage regional
strategies for management of water resources. An IRWMP should investigate a broad
spectrum of management strategies, identify the benefits of integrating water management
strategies, and identify priorities for implementing projects and programs.
How Can I Participate?
Although an initial IRWMP was completed in June 2006, it is always considered
a living document. A comprehensive update to the IRWMP was adopted in July 2013. RWA will continue ongoing meetings for those interested in participating
in the plan. To be added to the notification list for future forums, contact
Rob Swartz (email@example.com)
Do You Have a Project in Mind?
Stakeholders that have water management project plans with multiple benefits
are encouraged to let us know about them. Since the IRWMP is a living
document, project descriptions are welcome anytime for consideration of
being added to the IRWMP. To be eligible, projects must have a direct
relationship to water management. Visit the
American River Basin Integrated Water
Management Web Interface to input information on your project. For questions contact Rob Swartz (firstname.lastname@example.org)
