Water Board Priorities


To meet its mission to protect and restore water quality, the Water Board has to address current and evolving challenges. The work needed to address these challenges always exceeds the resources available. The Water Board therefore sets priorities. In recent years, the Board has considered and updated its priorities each fall. The following link provides the most current version of Board-wide and program-specific: October 2016. For a subset of the programs, the Board has identified an approach to prioritize cases within that program. The following link provides a description of the Board's prioritization approach for cases in the Site Cleanup Program: SCP case prioritization.
