The Roundtable of Regions is a consortium of representatives from Integrated Regional Water Management (IRWM) Regions around the state. Each IRWM is unique - but they all share many common interests. The Roundtable provides a forum for interested parties working on IRWM to discuss those interests and to share their successes and challenges. It also provides a forum for collaborating and providing input to the State on the IRWM Program. The Roundtable welcomes all groups who are actively working on developing and/or implementing IRWM Plans.

FROM YOUR CO-CHAIRS

    

Many of you involved with the IRWM Program are working from home. The Steering Committee hopes this message finds you healthy and safe.  Though we are all impacted by the ongoing public health emergency, we want to assure you that the Roundtable of Regions Steering Committee continues to meet and move forward on important activities.

Despite the current health crisis, we must continue our efforts to strengthen support for IRWM.  The Roundtable is one of the primary vehicles for communicating the benefits of IRWM and how important this approach and program are to future water resilience in California.  Now, more than ever, we need to make our voice heard – and continue our outreach to our IRWM colleagues, local elected officials and state officials/legislators.  Our recent efforts have made a difference and we need to keep it up!

 

We want to express our appreciation for your ongoing support of and participation in IRWM. Given the inclusive and collaborative nature of integrated regional water management, we would not be able to pursue the Roundtable’s important priorities without you.

“IRWM is unique because of the determination and willingness of interests that have not been in the same room together for decades to sit down at the same table and take on   issues one more time. It brings together sincere individuals seeking to bridge diverse perspectives, motives, and objectives to build relationships, support communities, and connect across differences—and in some cases, setting aside their own interests to support smaller or less affluent groups with greater needs.”
