In 2011, The California Department of Water Resources (DWR) awarded $2 million to the County of Tulare to develop a plan for regional water and wastewater solutions for Disadvantaged Communities (DACs) in the Tulare Lake Basin, including areas in Fresno, Kern, Kings and Tulare Counties. The final report, completed in August 2014, included recommendations addressing planning, infrastructure and other management actions for achieving sustainable community water solutions. The Stakeholder Oversight Advisory Committee (SOAC), which provided a key advisory role throughout the Study, created important opportunities for collaboration and information sharing among key stakeholders and served as a catalyst for several projects now moving forward.
In order to continue to engage local stakeholders and leverage of the accomplishments garnered through the TLB Study, this Tulare Lake Basin stakeholder group serves as an informal ad-hoc group to discuss current activities, progress, opportunities and action items for the implementation of the Study’s 57 recommendations. By bringing together key stakeholders, these quarterly meetings aim to promote collaboration, information sharing and the implementation of best practices throughout the Tulare Lake Basin. Our second meeting will be on Monday, January 25th. We hope to see you there!
