The OC Plan (DRAFT) - Public Review Period Closed on 12/22/2017

Update: Responses to comments are being prepared and the final draft plan will be completed by the end of February 2018.  The Call for Projects to build the IRWM Project List is now open through February 21st.  For information on the project submittal process, please visit: the Watershed Management Areas page of this website, or the new North/Central IRWM website/Data Management System (DMS).

Background: Efforts to develop an Integrated Regional WMA Plan for the North and Central OC Watershed Management Areas began in February, 2017. Stakeholder meetings focused on developing goals and objectives for the regions, and began to collect ideas for potential projects to be included in the (IRWMP) Plan. 

In July 2016, the California Department of Water Resources (DWR) released the 2016 Integrated Regional Water Management Grant Program Guidelines for Proposition 1. These guidelines establish the general procedures and criteria that DWR is using to implement the IRWM grant program. Based on these guidelines the North and Central IRWM Plan (The OC Plan) was restructured to follow DWR Proposition 1 guidelines.
