Draft Drinking Water Well Principles and Strategies Public Webinar
As part of the April 21, 2021 Executive Drought Proclamation, the California Department of Water Resources (DWR), in coordination with the State Water Resources Control Board, is releasing the groundwater management principles and strategies to monitor, analyze, and minimize drinking water well impacts. The release of the draft principles and strategies initiates a 30-day public comment period. All perspectives are welcome and interested parties are encouraged to attend.
Written public comments can be provide via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org or via public comment at the webinar on September 23.
A public webinar will be hosted on the draft principles and strategies:
September 23 – Noon to 1:30pm
The State hosted three Listening Sessions in June 2021 to gather public input and provided a Draft Concepts Public Workshop in July 2021 on this effort. The Executive Proclamation identifies Item #11:
“To ensure the potential impacts of drought on communities are anticipated and proactively addressed, the Department of Water Resources, in coordination with the Water Board, shall develop groundwater management principles and strategies to monitor, analyze, and minimize impacts to drinking water wells.”
