Office of Public Affairs

Press Room and Public Notices

The Office of Public Affairs responds to the news media and public inquiries about the Water Boards' programs and decisions. The staff coordinates all contact with news media representatives.

Many issues originate in one of the nine regional water quality control boards throughout California. Media are encouraged to contact the regional boards directly on local or regional issues and the State Water Resources Control Board Office of Public Affairs for statewide issues. The State Water Board public information officers can serve as liaisons to media on regional issues, if needed.
