“Water 360” to Strengthen
Integrated Water Management
TODAY, DWR issued “A Commitment to Action,” proceedings from California’s first integrated water
management (IWM) summit held recently. “Water 360,” a campaign designed to
use IWM to strengthen the efforts of California’s water management community, was launched at the summit
“Water 360” will help refocus and
strengthen the water management community by advancing integrated water
management, a framework for planning and implementation that melds the
objectives of improving public safety, fostering environmental stewardship and
supporting economic stability to lead to sustainable water resource management.
Integrated water management is not
a new concept in California, and great strides have been made in the last
decade to utilize the approach, particularly at the regional level. The Water
360 Campaign builds on these early successes and calls for broader application
across the entire state.
DWR is prepared and committed to
lead this effort in close partnership with other water leaders, particularly
State, federal, and local agencies; and in collaboration with all stakeholders.
