In response to Legislative and public requests, California Water Commission (CWC) staff is scheduling another round of meetings with Water Storage Investment Program (WSIP) applicants to discuss updated technical reviews that will be posted April 20.

CWC announced on Tuesday, April 3, that the meetings will take place April 24-25. The meetings will be open to the public and include CWC staff, review team members and applicants. During the meetings, technical reviewers will walk through updated staff recommendations regarding public benefit ratios (PBRs) for proposed projects and take questions from applicants and the public. The meetings will help to identify any issues requiring clarification when the CWC meets in May to decide the final PBRs.

Each WSIP applicant will have an individual 90-minute meeting with the technical review team. The facilitated meetings will take place at the Tsakopoulos Library Galleria at 828 I Street in Sacramento, and will be webcast. Additional information, with the webcast link and additional remote participation options, will be distributed by CWC prior to the April 24-25 meetings.
