Council Coordination

The State Water Plan charges EPD with "ensuring coordination of water planning across the boundaries of adjoining water planning regions."  The State Water Plan emphasizes the importance of coordination among councils for water resources that are hydrologically connected or those affected by water management activities in adjacent planning regions.

Furthermore, Section 1D of the Regional Water Planning Councils’ Memoranda of Agreement, provides that the Councils are responsible for "coordinating with adjacent water planning councils and/or water planning councils that share resources." In order to meet these requirements, the Regional Water Planning Councils periodically hold joint Council meetings.
