Southern California Integrated Watershed Program

The Southern California Integrated Watershed Program (SCIWP) provides $235 million in funding, under the auspices of Proposition 13, through the Waterboards to the Santa Ana Watershed Project Authority (SAWPA) for the purpose of rehabilitating and improving the Santa Ana River Watershed. The funds may be used for the following types of projects:

  • Basin water banking in one or more of the following basins: Chino, Colton, Orange County, Riverside, San Bernardino, and San Jacinto.
  • Contaminant and salt removal through reclamation and desalting in Orange County, San Jacinto, or other basins in the watershed.
  • Removal of nonnative plants, and the creation of new open space and wetlands.
  • Programs for water conservation and efficiency and storm water capture and management.
  • Planning and implementation of a flood control program to protect agricultural operations and adjacent property, to assist in abating the effects of waste discharges into waters of the state, consistent with the requirements of Section 13442.

SAWPA, in consultation with the Santa Ana Regional Water Quality Control Board and the Waterboards, developed a project priority list through a broad-based Santa Ana River Watershed stakeholder process.

These projects will be undertaken by local public agencies operating in the Santa Ana River Watershed. Get additional information.
