California Water Commission

The California Water Commission consists of nine members appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the State Senate. Seven members  are chosen for their general expertise related to the control, storage, and beneficial use of water and two are chosen for their knowledge of the environment. The Commission provides a public forum for discussing water issues, advises the Department of Water Resources (DWR), and takes appropriate statutory actions to further the development of policies that support integrated and sustainable water resource management and a healthy environment. Statutory duties include advising the Director of DWR, approving rules and regulations, and monitoring and reporting on the construction and operation of the State Water Project.  

 

​​​·   Water Storage Investment Program: Scoping Survey Now Available

One of the first steps in developing the Commission's Water Storage Investment Program is an initial scoping survey to collect cursory information about potential water storage projects from project proponents that may request Proposition 1 funding. The Commission will use this information to inform the development of the regulations, guidelines, and implementation process.

For details about the survey, please follow the scoping survey link. Please respond by March 11.
