Moving Forward…
DWR is promoting a modern, holistic 360-degree
approach to water management:
Support a comprehensive 360-degree view for measuring success
Improve alignment of regulatory responsibility and encourage
cooperation among water managers, practitioners, and stakeholders
Move beyond single-objective focus and to multi-benefit, long-range,
and fiscally responsible solutions
This is Integrated Water Management.

Integrating Water Management
Integrated Water Management (IWM)
• Strategic approach to plan and implement Water Management
programs
– flood management
– ecosystem actions
– water supply actions
• Multiple benefits across watershed and jurisdictional
boundaries
• Maximizes limited resources to provide for
– public safety
– environmental stewardship
– economic stability

be a long-term future oriented plan to:
Build on the current and past successes of IRWM
Further enable, empower, and support regional water management groups
Better align state and federal programs to support IRWM
Inform and influence future water management policies and investments for California
Inspire the expansion and improvement of IRWM

Improving Coordination
Land Use Planning & Water Management
•
Land use planning controlled locally
•
Water management decentralized -over 2,300 counties, cities, public
agencies, and private water companies
•
IRWM coordinates land use planning
with water supply, quality, flood
management, and climate adaptation
•
State Government provides technical
assistance and financial incentives
•
More coordination among State
agencies & with IRWM Partnerships

Integrated Flood Management
•
Comprehensive approach to
flood management
•
Considers land & water resources
at watershed scale
•
Minimizes loss of life and
property damage from flooding
•

Purpose of Regional Planning Process
• Build upon the 2012 CVFPP by informing
State-led Basinwide Feasibility Studies
• Engage local agencies in flood management
planning
• Gather detailed regional information
• Develop local flood management strategies
and priorities
• Create a financial plan for future projects
