OWOW 1.0 Plan

Moving Towards Sustainability

The OWOW Plan was developed by a diverse group of stakeholders led by a Steering Committee Composed of public officials from counties and cities in the watershed, representatives from the environmental, regulatory, and business communities, and representatives from the Santa Ana Watershed Authority (SAWPA). The Steering Committee was supported by technical experts grouped into ten disciplines (known as Pillars), ranging from water supply and quality, to climate change, to environmental justice.


The mission of the OWOW Plan is to create opportunities for collaboration to find sustainable watershed-wide solutions among diverse stakeholders from throughout the Watershed. The Plan will also provide a blueprint for water resources management in the Watershed for the next 30 years.
