The Kings Basin Integrated Regional Water Management Plan (IRWMP or Plan) provides a comprehensive overview of the Kings Basin’s water supply, demand and conditions. The Plan is a collaborative effort between more than 50 public, private and non-governmental organizations joined under a Joint Powers Agreement to help manage water resources in the Kings Basin. This is one of the most broadly based efforts to address water issues in the region. It includes representatives of agriculture, urban and environmental stakeholders that have come together to engage in integrated regional solutions to managing the shared water resource. The IRWMP area covers 610,000 acres and includes parts of Fresno, Kings and Tulare counties.

 

To date, the Water Authority has leveraged over $35 million in state and private financial support for use toward planning activities and to construct projects that address groundwater, water conservation and efficiency, water quality, riparian habitat, flood protection and water needs of disadvantaged communities.

 

The panel will discuss:

  • Collaboration of public, private and non-governmental agencies
  • Purpose of the plan
  • Creating the plan
  • Benefits of the plan
  • Selecting priority projects
  • State funding opportunities
  • Projects completed

Speakers: Eric Osterling from Kings River Conservation District, Ronald Samuelian from Provost & Pritchard Engineering, Augie Ramirez from the County of Fresno, and Michelle Dooley from the Department of Water Resources.

 

Date: Thursday, March 21, 2013 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM
