Agricultural Advisory Group Named to Assist with Executive Order on Long-Term Conservation

The California Department of Water Resources has provided public notice that an agricultural advisory group has been named to help implement Gov. Jerry Brown’s executive order making water conservation a California way of life.

 The advisory group, which includes representatives of several ACWA member agencies, will hold its first meeting on Aug. 25. A meeting agenda and other details will be posted as they are developed on DWR’s Water Use Efficiency web page.

DWR is working with other state agencies to develop a framework to carry out elements of the executive order, with the goal of issuing a proposed draft framework by Jan. 10, 2017. The schedule provides time to conduct essential engagement with the interested parties, and to identify legislation needed to implement the framework.
