Collaborators

The Water for Monterey County Coalition (formerly called the Monterey Regional Plenary Oversight Group (REPOG) or the Monterey Regional Water Supply Reliability Collaboration), was formed in 2007 with the goal of developing a comprehensive water resource plan for the Monterey Region.  To accomplish this goal, the UCSC Center for Integrated Water Research (CIWR) has been facilitating a series of meetings, or dialogues, with all interested parties.  The objective of the dialogues is to collaborate among the various interested parties on a solution, or perhaps several complementary solutions, to supplying the water needs of the Monterey Region in a cost-effective and sustainable way. Representatives from the following government entities, water agencies, non governmental organizations, citizen groups, and private firms have attended the regional dialgoue meetings, which are open to the public. Residents from different areas in Monterey County also attend regularly.
