Public Records Requests

This page contains the key information needed to request access to inspect and obtain copies of public records maintained by the California Regional Water Quality Control Board, Lahontan Region (Regional Board).

The Regional Board maintains public records containing extensive information on water quality, waste discharges, beneficial uses of water and water quality regulatory program activities in the Lahontan Region dating from the early 1950s. The public records created and received by the Regional Board in the course of administering California's water quality protection programs in the Lahontan Region are a vital resource. They serve as the memory of the Regional Board organization; a record of past events and the basis for future actions. Access to these public records is a right of all Californians.


See the link below for information regarding review of the Board's public records.
