Division of Water Rights COVID-19 Notice:

As a result of the COVID-19 emergency, most Water Board offices are closed to the public for three weeks beginning December 7, 2020, and non-essential file reviews are postponed. This reduction of staff within the CalEPA building will unfortunately delay response times for requests received by the Division of Water Rights. We appreciate your patience and will continue to process all requests we receive. Please continue to contact the Division of Water Rights at DWR@waterboards.ca.gov, or (916) 341-5300, for all your water right requests and questions.
