Project Solicitation, Selection, and Prioritization

As part of IRWMP implementation, the IRWMP project list will be updated on an annual basis (or more often as needed) to keep the list of included projects current, comprehensive, and responsive to current conditions. Projects are selected for incorporation into the Final Project List based on their ability to meet IRWMP goals and objectives, compatibility with State Resource Management Strategies, and readiness to proceed. The steps taken to create the Final Project List are broken into the 3 phases summarized below.
