3 IRWM Program Background

4 What is IRWM? Collaborative effort to manage all aspects of water resources in a region Differs from traditional approaches by integrating all facets Water supply Water quality Waste water treatment Stormwater management Crosses jurisdictional, watershed and political boundaries Involves multiple agencies, stakeholder, and groups for mutually beneficial solutions

5 General IRWM Planning Objective IRWM is not an end in itself but a means of achieving key strategic objectives. efficiency to make water resources go as far as possible environmental sustainability, to protect the water resources base and associated ecosystems

6 Why is the IRWMP Important? Fosters coordination, collaboration and communication among agencies Supports efficient and effective management of regional water supplies, watershed, and habitat protection Enables stakeholder participation Positions stakeholders to compete for future funding opportunities

7 State IRWM Program Background Timeline IRWM Act of 2002 amended State Water Code November 2002 Proposition 50 $500,000,000 fund competitive grants with IRWMs Joint effort with DWR and SWRCB December 2005 DWR released CWP update Names IRWM as key for reliable water supplies November 2006 Proposition 84

8 State IRWM Program Background Timeline November 2006 Proposition 84 Provides $1,000,000,000 for IRWM planning and implementation Proposition 1E Disaster Preparedness and Flood Prevention Bond Act of 2006 Provides $300,000,000 for storm water projects that reduce flood damage and consistent with an IRWM October 2009 CWP Pre-Final Draft

9 Original State Goals for IRWM Fosters Collaboration Between Agencies Supports Effective Water Management Enables Stakeholder Participation Positions Region for Funding

10 DWR IRWM Plan Requirements Plan standards ensure IRWM Plans include specific content; region has flexibility in how issues are addressed 26

27 Integrated Flood Management

28 What is Integrated Flood Management? Holistic approach for dealing with flood risks: Interconnection flood management actions within water resources management and land use planning Value of coordinating across geographic and agency boundaries Need to evaluate opportunities and impacts from a system perspective Importance of environmental stewardship and sustainability

29 Addressing Regional Flood Management Constraints / Issues

30 Comprehensive Flood Management Integrates Multiple Water Resource Benefits Challenge is to provide flood protection while capturing multiple water resource benefits Holistic approach to flood risk management at watershed scale address functions / beneficial uses Comprehensive flood management planning is the most effective way to address flood control issues Flood management cannot be performed separately from decisions on landuse/water supply/safety/environ Watershed plan integrating other water resource programs foundation for focused stakeholder advocacy assists in funding

31 Traditional Flood Protection Approach Created Variety of Issues and Limitations Single focus of public safety with conventional flood control measures Environmental, fiscal, and management issues Flood risk reduction strategies constrained by previous landuse and development decisions Ignored water conservation opportunities/benefits

32 Common Failures of Flood Management Plans One time study rather than long term management process Stakeholder involvement and local ownership lacking Did not address landuse/management issues in watersheds Planning activities were not conducted at appropriate level Incorporate regulatory limitations and environmental permitting constraints Address watershed problems at appropriate scale Management plan viewed as starting point not end point Iterative and adaptive process

33 Integrated Management Introduces Key Watershed Planning Principles Respect the natural hydrologic processes Focus on the cause of the damage not the symptom Consider the entire watershed not just local condition Public participation and interagency coordination Embrace other water resource protection goals

34 Statewide Floodplain Management Planning - DWR

35 Key Goal of SFMP Program Aligned with IRWM Study

36 Statewide Floodplain Management Planning Study

37 Flood Management Planning Study Program

38 Importance of Integrated Floodplain Management in IRWM Update DWR guidelines emphasize importance of integrated flood management (IFM) Scoring on recent Prop 84 grant proposal included focus on IFM IFM must be addressed in IRWM update to ensure ability to secure maximum funding Competitive IFM projects incorporated into the IRWM project database

39 Flood Risk Management Most Effective Through a Watershed Planning Process

40 Flood Management Planning Study Objectives Watershed Planning is dynamic process requiring adaptive management adjusting to changing conditions so must be flexible Development of planning level tools Guidance framework for regional collaborative planning Forum for improved regional flood /watershed planning Communication with regional floodplain managers Define global strategies to form basis in developing prospective projects for funding

41 Study Work Program Phase 1 Inventory / Initiation

42 1 st Characterization of Flood Issues through Flood Managers Forum Develop a culture of communication for flood management agencies through forum Sharing information / strategies / benefits and costs discussions are the norm Decision-making process Provide a standard approach to coordination with major land use planning agencies in watersheds Understanding actual problems requiring solutions Existing and future flood risk Level of Risks Sources of Flooding Priorities

43 Tools for Standardizing and Assessing Level of Risk to Provide Most Benefit GIS Database Integrate Flood Hazards and landuses Define opportunities and constraints

44 Study Work Program Phase 2 Stakeholder Planning Process

45 2 nd Planning Process Define Global Management Strategies Identification of global opportunities and constraints Watershed beneficial uses Formulate global management strategy approaches Structural / Nonstructural Application of watershed planning principles Landuse planning Floodplain vegetation management Regional runoff storage / infiltration Risk management

46 Global Strategy Formulation / Approaches Global solution planning process Watershed basis (specific regional watersheds) Similar geographic regions (i.e. coastal plains, valley) or watershed characteristics Typical IFM Strategies: Regional flood storage / infiltration Floodplain management Watershed landuse planning Inventory of Flooding Issues / constraints / sources on same basis

47 Study Work Program Phase 3 Strategy Formulation Process

48 3 rd Regional Guidance Documenting Comprehensive Flood Management Program Planning Guidance Document Formalized watershed / flood management planning process Adaptive plan flexible to changes watershed/regulatory Defines control and communication process for agency collaboration Standard protocols for data sharing and common language for understanding watershed Projects Implementation Prioritization Evaluation Screening process to prioritize projects for funding Specialized Analytical Hierarchy Process numerically rank alternative projects on achieving multiple objectives

49 Collaboration Stakeholder Workshop Planning Process Opportunity to engage stakeholders through workshops / technical forums participating in plan development Workshop No. 1 - Background and Inventory of Watershed Flooding / Constraints / Priorities Workshop No. 2 - Define Opportunities / Goals / Strategies Workshop No. 3 - Review DRAFT Planning Guidance Document

50 Regional IFM Guidance Document Define generalized regional IFM planning program Guidance on integrated global strategies to maximize funding Basic framework of categories for strategies based on specific watersheds or characteristic type of watershed or target constraints Floodplain managers forum and communication structure to improve collaboration and planning activities
