SAWPA Roundtables, also known as Task Forces, provide a forum for joint water resource management efforts to address watershed issues and regulatory compliance. The SAWPA Roundtables operate under formal and informal agreements, often with the Santa Ana Regional Water Quality Control Board as a member, and are designed to work cooperatively with the regulated community to address water quality issues. The Roundtables have a long and strong track record of partnerships with organizations with shared interests pursing overall watershed sustainability.
The Roundtables create value among regulators, regulated parties, and SAWPA members by facilitating stakeholder pro-cesses for collaboration, producing significant cost savings through joint efforts to address water management issues. SAWPA serves as administrator and provides both regional capacity and a neutral venue for Roundtable collaboration and watershed planning.
