The Drought Resilience Interagency and Partners (DRIP) is an opportunity for representatives from a wide range of water-related interested parties to be a part of a standing interagency drought and water shortage task force for the state of California.
This task force will facilitate proactive state planning and coordination for pre-drought planning, drought emergency response and post-drought recovery; develop strategies to enhance collaboration; and develop plans, responses and strategies in a way that considers all water users.
Two representatives will be selected to represent agriculture to work with eight representatives from state agencies and two representatives each from local governments, community-based organizations, Tribal representation, nonprofit technical assistance providers, the public, environment, public water systems, and experts in land use planning, water resilience and water infrastructure.
