What is the IRWM?

Integrated Regional Water Management (IRWM) is a collaborative effort to manage all aspects of water resources in a region.


  • Crosses jurisdictional, watershed, and political boundaries
  • Involves multiple agencies, stakeholders, individuals, and groups
  • Addresses regional issues and differing perspectives of all the entities involved through mutually beneficial solutions.
  • Develops multi-benefit solutions
