About Inyo-Mono IRWMP

webLogoBorderLCbluewater2 borderThe Inyo-Mono Integrated Regional Water Management Program (IRWMP) is a part of a statewide effort that is geared towards finding and implementing solutions for regional water management issues. The Inyo – Mono IRWMP formally began in 2008 and since its inception has raised more than $2.5 million to assist with essential water management projects and research for Inyo, Mono, and Kern Counties.

The efforts of the Inyo-Mono IRWMP are guided by the Integrated Regional Water Management Plan and are supported by over 30 organizations or Regional Water Management Group Members that are signatories to the MOU which guides the governance of the group. All current IRWMP work falls under funding for Planning, Implementation, or work for Disadvantaged Communities (DACs). The work and projects of the Inyo-Mono IRWMP are funded by grants through the California Department of Water Resources which are made available through Proposition 84 funding.
