The Department of Water Resources (DWR) is responsible for managing and protecting California’s
water. DWR works with other agencies to benefit the state’s people, and to protect, restore and enhance
the natural and human environments.

IRWM 2.0 – The Next Generation
Integrated Regional Water Management – words that describe an essential approach to survive California’s severe four-year drought. Gary Bardini, DWR’s Deputy Director for Integrated Water Management, is leading the department’s integrated resources team at a May 21-22 IRWM conference in San Diego for policymakers, city and county officials, water agencies, businesses, tribes, environmental organizations and academia. Among the topics are IRWM practices and programs to help meet drought-related challenges, stronger IRWM practices, aligning multiple agencies and coordinating multiple missions and the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act. Also featured is an expo where attendees can check out DWR tools to support IRWM efforts.
