Future workshops
In order to allow agencies and non-governmental organizations to submit project proposals by the September 1 deadline, we will hold Workshops #2 and #3 further along in the Plan development process, likely in early 2013.  This will allow stakeholders to learn about and provide input on chapters dealing with topics such Bay Area IRWM Plan performance and monitoring, financing integrated projects, and the relationship of integrated water management to land use planning and climate change.  Please visit the project website ( where information will be posted as it becomes available. We will also send a notice of the workshops, so please make sure to include our email address in your “approved” list.
