The Upper Sacramento, McCloud and Lower Pit Regional Water Action Group (RWAG) works together to collaboratively manage water resources in this IRWM region based on the Integrated Regional Water Management Plan developed by the group in 2011-2014. Since 2014, the group has been meeting on a regular basis to prepare and apply for funding from the Department of Water Resources for projects in the IRWM Plan. Projects include critical municipal water infrastructure needs (eg. water main replacements) as well as “green infrastructure” projects that seek to keep forested watersheds healthy.
