Information about participating in the Santa Ana Regional Board’s remote meeting is further down on this page and should be reviewed before joining the meeting.

Instructions for obtaining Meeting ID and password are below.
You do not need to create a Zoom account to join the meeting.
As a result of the COVID-19 emergency and the Governor’s Executive Orders N-29-20 and N-33-20, this meeting will occur solely via remote presence by video and teleconference. There will not be a physical public access location. The Santa Ana Water Board is conducting the meeting this way to protect public health by avoiding public gatherings and requiring social distancing. At the same time, the Santa Ana Water Board remains committed to transparency. Members of the public will be able to listen to and watch the meeting and comment if desired.
The Board asks for patience and cooperation. While every effort has been made to streamline the experience and conduct meetings in the manner to which our stakeholders have grown accustomed, there may be technical issues and human error. We will attempt to correct any issues that arise as soon as we can.
Individuals who require special accommodations are requested to contact the Jeannie Agular by phone at: (951) 782-3285 or by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The webcast can be viewed through most web browsers from this page: https://cal-span.org/.
Individuals who only want to watch or listen should use this option as it preserves interactive meeting resources for those who are commenting on items.
If you need Spanish translation of the meeting, please complete the online registration and then follow the instruction to turn your audio feed to Spanish.
The Santa Ana Regional Board will be using a remote meeting service to host the interactive part of the meeting. With the remote participation option, you can either call in or use a computer or mobile device (e.g., mobile phone or tablet) to participate via audio or video conference.
If you want to use your phone to provide comments but follow along with the video presentations (e.g., because you do not have or want to use a computer microphone or camera), you can do so, but the computer or mobile device will need to be connected to the Zoom meeting using the steps below for “Participating via Video Conference.” When connecting to the Zoom meeting through a computer or mobile device select the option that you are participating by phone call. The Zoom service will give you a participant number that you can then enter on your phone.
Persons speaking at Regional Water Board meetings are accustomed to filling out a speaker card. To allow for a more orderly process of identifying speakers in advance, the Regional Water Board will use virtual speaker cards. The virtual speaker card will allow the Board Clerk to identify commenters interested in a particular item, locate them within the Zoom meeting waiting list, and unmute them so they can address the Board at the appropriate time.
To request to speak on an item and to receive the meeting password:
After you submit the online registration form, you will receive an email with the Zoom weblink and phone numbers to participate in the meeting. If you do not receive a confirmation email with the Zoom information after filling out the online registration form, please email email@example.com or call 951-782-3285.
If you do not complete the online registration form by the deadline, please do so as soon as you can. You cannot participate in the Zoom meeting until you receive an email with the Meeting ID and password. This means you may need to begin watching the webcast available at: https://cal-span.org/.
