Integrated Regional Water Management (IRWM) is a collaborative effort to manage all aspects of water resources in a region. IRWM crosses jurisdictional, watershed, and political boundaries; involves multiple agencies, stakeholders, individuals, and groups; and attempts to address the issues and differing perspectives of all the entities involved through mutually beneficial solutions. For more information on IRWM, visit the IRWM Homepage. To get involved with your local IRWM Region, contact your region's representative. Contact information can be found here under IRWM Planning Regions.
DWR's IRWM Grant Programs are managed within the Division of IRWM by the Financial Assistance Branch, with assistance from the Regional Planning Branch and regional offices. DWR has a number of IRWM grant program funding opportunities including: planning, implementation, and groundwater sustainability.
