A multi-agency, multi-jurisdictional framework forms the basis for the Region’s governance structure. This structure provides for management of project implementation, grant funding communication, Plan revisions and updates, and general coordination among stakeholders. The Region’s governance structure features an inclusive process that encourages stakeholder involvement in the IRWM planning process. The Region’s governance structure is comprised of three key groups that work together to provide the region with focused direction while allowing for effective and comprehensive inter- and intra-regional collaboration. The Integrated Regional Water Management Group (IRWMG) selected Rancho Water as its program manager who lead the region’s IRWM Program, including funding and contracting for planning, applying for funding, and implementing funded efforts on behalf of the RWMG.
