Public Workshop Targets Water Management Plan

The cooperating partners of the Santa Barbara region Integrated Regional Water Management (IRWM) plan will host a public workshop 5:30-7 p.m. Monday, April 9, in the county Planning Commission hearing room, 105 E. Anapamu St.

Remote access will be available in Santa Maria at the Betteravia Government Center Board of Supervisors hearing room, 511 Lakeside Parkway.

The workshop is an opportunity for the community, interested stakeholders, and the public at large to discuss and comment on important aspects of the IRWM plan update including:

» Legislative requirements
» Resource management strategies
» Climate vulnerabilities and adaption measures
» Development of projects for IRWM funding and other funding

The workshop will include an update on the most recent funding obtained by Santa Barbara County through the IRWM program and the projects funded through the California Department of Water Resources for Disadvantaged Communities.

Public participation and input are sought to ensure the community and interested stakeholders have an opportunity to shape the IRWM plan and projects, and understand the importance of the IRWM program and plan, and how both are updated and utilized.

For information regarding the IRWM program and plan efforts, visit the county’s IRWM website, http://cosb.countyofsb.org/irwmp/.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
