The Tahoe-Sierra IRWM Plan

An Integrated Regional Water Management (IRWM) Plan was the outcome of an effort to identify regional water resources challenges and opportunities and prioritize actions and projects to address the challenges and opportunities. The goal has been to leverage the resources of twenty-eight agencies spanning the counties of Alpine, El Dorado, Placer, Nevada and Sierra, and pursue state and federal funding to implement projects identified through the planning process. Residents from within the planning area have been strongly encouraged to participate in developing the plan by attending community meetings, reading and commenting on documents, and bringing forward concerns and suggestions.
