Integrated Regional Watershed Management Program

The Santa Ana River Watershed is part of the North Orange County Watershed Management Area (WMA). A local North Orange County Watershed Management Area Integrated Regional Watershed Management Plan (IRWMP) was developed and finalized in 2011. This North Orange County WMA IRWMP was an effort to work cooperatively for planning water management strategies in the region.
