DWR Schedules Additional Workshop for Integrated Regional Water Management Grant Program

SACRAMENTO, CA--(Marketwire - November 24, 2008) - The Department of Water Resources (DWR) has scheduled an additional Southern California workshop regarding the Propositions 84 and 1E funded Integrated Regional Water Management (IRWM) Program.

The purpose of this meeting is to discuss how DWR plans to expedite both the Proposition 84 IRWM Implementation and Proposition 1E Stormwater Flood Management grant funding.

On September 30, 2008, Governor Schwarzenegger signed SBxx1 which contained appropriations for the IRWM program.

Proposition 84

$181,791,000, of which $100,000,000 is for implementation grants

Proposition 1E

$150,000,000 for Stormwater Flood Management projects

Three workshops on this same topic were held November 18, 19, and 21. The additional meeting will be identical to those previous meetings. The region acceptance process will be discussed, questions will be answered, and a draft schedule will be reviewed.
