Section N: Planning Coordination

Section N

Planning Coordination

In order to minimize conflicts and optimize water resource utilization, it is essential that there is an appropriate level of coordination with local, State, and federal agencies and stakeholders. RWMG is responsible for the coordination efforts between these entities. Section N identifies public agencies representing the IRWM region and discusses their role in water management within the region. The existing agreements and coordination efforts taking place on a Water Planning Area level are listed in the table below.
