Public Workshop -– Regional Water/Flood/Watershed Planning
The first public workshop for development of the Bay Area Integrated Regional Water Management Plan will be held on Monday, July 23, 2012 from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. at the Association of Bay Area Governments Auditorium, 101 Eighth Street, Oakland, CA (Lake Merritt BART Station).
The purpose of the workshop is to inform water professionals, land-use planners, environmental planners, non-profit organizations and community members about the 2013 update to the Bay Area IRWMP, how it affects communities, how public agencies and non-profit organizations can have input into the plan, and how to submit a water project to be included in the Plan, thereby qualifying agencies and non-profit organizations to compete for state water bond grants. Organizations representing Bay Area disadvantaged, low-income communities are encouraged to submit project ideas.
The Bay Area IRWMP is a multi-stakeholder, nine-county roadmap to coordinate and improve water supply reliability, protect water quality, manage flood protection, maintain public health standards, protect habitat and watershed resources, and enhance the overall health of San Francisco Bay.
A second workshop will be held August 27, 2012, 4 – 6 p.m., location to be determined.
