Collaboration

The Department of Water Resources (DWR) and four other State agencies, including the State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB), California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), and California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA), and California Energy Commission (CEC), are developing a long-term framework to make water conservation a California way of life, as directed by Governor’s Executive Order B-37-16.

Collaboration and Engagement

The EO Agencies have worked collaboratively to identify actions and recommendations that can satisfy the directives issued by the Governor in EO-B-37-16, and identify a timeline for their implementation. Comments and input were provided through the direct dialogue during various public meetings and workshop, and through additional written communication through emails and transmittals. The former was documented in the meeting summary. Stakeholders and interest parties are also encouraged to submit written comments and input (see Comments). All input and comments were considered by the EO Agencies to improve the long-term framework development. No specific responses will be provided.collaborationcollaboration
