Over the past twelve years and across the State, diverse groups have been coming together to create model Integrated Regional Water Management Plans (IRWMPs) to ensure reliable water supply, protect water quality and restore watersheds. While in various stages of pre-planning, planning and implementation, IRWMPs now cover almost the entire State of California, all of the Sierra and Cascade Regions. The Sierra Water Workgroup mission is to assist regional efforts to protect and enhance water quality, water supply, and watershed health; to develop cooperative regional responses; and to facilitate reinvestment in our watersheds and water resources by all beneficiaries.
The 2019 Sierra Water Workgroup Summit, sponsored by the California Lawyers Association, the Sierra Nevada Conservancy, and Sierra Nevada Alliance will take place in Kings Beach, CA. Please click here for Suggested Lodging Options.

This year's Summit is a two-day workshop focused on approaches to addressing catastrophic fire, water supply, flood and environmental protection.
The first day of the summit will include a keynote address by Angela Avery, and panel/ discussion sessions on the topics of wildfire, climate change, and headwaters water supply.
On our second day will include regional organization presentations and a series of panel discussions on the topics of tribal collaboration in the Sierra, tools and resources, and how do we build a Sierra coalition?
There will also be time for mingling and networking. We can’t wait to see you again, or for the first time, this year!
