Practical Vision: Healthy Waters, Healthy People

The Practical Vision is a planning tool to focus our limited resources onto our region’s highest priorities for the next 7 years. This follows our agency’s mission to protect, enhance and restore the quality of California waters so that our communities can use and enjoy the waters. It sets a plan to achieve healthy waters through collaboration, reliance on the latest science, prioritization of issues and actions, and prudent use of our authorities in service to the people of California.
