Integrated Regional Water Management Final Recommendations

To All,

Regional Acceptance Process The Director of the Department of Water Resources (DWR) has approved the Integrated Regional Water Management (IRWM) Program Region Acceptance Process (RAP) final recommendations.  DWR received 46 RAP proposals, approved 36 regions, and conditionally approved 10 regions.  Please see the attached announcement. The region acceptance process is a component of the Integrated Regional Water Management (IRWM) Program Guidelines and will be used to evaluate and accept an IRWM region into the IRWM grant program.  It is not a grant funding application, however, acceptance and approval of the composition of an IRWM region into the IRWM grant program will be required before any region can submit an application for IRWM grant funds.  DWR has not previously reviewed and accepted any region, therefore, this process applies to all IRWM regions, both existing and developing. The final RAP recommendations and associated materials (review summaries, individual RAP documents,and maps) are posted on the following DWR IRWM Program website:http://www.water.ca.gov/irwm/integregio_rap2.cfm If you have questions about the IRWMP grant program and the RAP, please contact: Trevor Joseph
