Proposition 1 IRWM Plan Review Process

Proposition 1 IRWM funding is available for projects that are included and implemented in an adopted IRWM Plan, consistent with Water Code Section 10530 et seq. The IRWM Plan Review Process (PRP) is used to provide a systematic and consistent way for DWR review IRWM plan content to determine consistency with the plan standards contained in the current IRWM Program Guidelines.
