Mark Drew, Eastern Sierra Regional Manager, California Trout, Mammoth Lakes, CA
Lisa Beutler, Executive Facilitator, MWH, Sacramento, CA
Holly Alpert, Program Manager Inyo-Mono IRWM, Mammoth Lakes, CA
Judith Talbot, Independent Facilitator,
Ryan Christensen, Bristlecone Media

Join us for a premier of a Documentary highlighting the importance of water to eastern Sierra communities. Produced in partnership with the Inyo-Mono Integrated Regional Water Management (IRWM) Program, California Trout, and Bristlecone Productions, the film draws the connections between water, people and the local landscapes, and features work with disadvantaged communities. The documentary will be presented in the first 25 minutes with an interactive, moderated discussion of key points and how the ideas presented apply in the broader integrated water management world.

The Inyo-Mono (IRWM) program is comprised of a broad array of stakeholders throughout California's Inyo and Mono Counties as well as stakeholders from northern San Bernardino and Kern Counties. More than thirty public, private and not-for-profit entities actively work towards the goal of establishing and implementing an IRWM Plan for Inyo and Mono Counties. The effort has engaged federal, state, and local government; resource and water agencies; non-profit and conservation organizations; Native American tribal organizations; educational organizations; business interests; agriculture and ranching groups; and individuals having vested interests in how water is managed in eastern California.

The mission of the Inyo-Mono IRWM Program is "to research, identify, prioritize, and act on regional water issues, and related social and economic issues, so as to protect and enhance our environment and economy. Working together, we create and implement a regional water management plan that complies with applicable policies and regulations and promotes innovative solutions for our region's needs."

The Truckee River begins as the sole outlet from Lake Tahoe and flows 121 miles northeast into the Great Basin, where it empties into Pyramid Lake. The 3,060 square miles of the Truckee Basin contain a microcosm of the problems facing western water use: changing land and water uses, urban development in the floodplain, threatened endangered species restoration, and water quality concerns. The 'closed' nature of this basin creates a zero-sum water supply environment that amplifies scarcity: because the river terminates at a lake instead of an ocean, changes in water use by any one entity have an easily measurable effect on the resources of others. Overlaying this already complex set of issues are climate change, economics and multi-jurisdictional responsibilities. This assembled panel with representatives from Reclamation and the largest municipal, agricultural, tribal users in the Truckee Basin will discuss their perspectives on the current challenges, future uncertainties, and efforts being taken to reduce or avoid imbalances in supply and demand in the Truckee Basin. Presented as a facilitated open discussion, the session will allow the audience to probe into the approaches formulated for the Truckee Basin, and how they might be adapted or applied across other geographies.

Provide the audience with multiple perspectives on:

  • The history and outlook for Truckee River waters
  • Challenges and "wildcards" in meeting those goals
  • Expectations and actions being pursued by various parties to meet goals and manage the "unknown unknowns"

The American River Basin (ARB) is situated in the greater Sacramento region, as well as parts of Placer, and El Dorado Counties. The ARB Integrated Regional Water Management Plan (IRWM) helps implement the region's vision for responsibly managing water resources to provide for the lasting health of its community, economy, and environment. The ARB IRWM Process is considered a model for California. The ARB has successfully paired about $70 million in state and federal grants with local funds to implement dozens of projects with integrated benefits. After more than two decades of regional collaboration on IRWM, the ARB has much to share with others seeking to implement successful IRWM to ensure sustainable resources. This session, presented primarily as a Case Study, examines the ARB IRWM from its roots to efforts today.

Key Topics include:

  • Starting the Collaborative Process - the Sacramento Area Water Forum
  • Developing IRWM Capacity - the Regional Water Authority
  • Building an IRWM Planning Framework - Balancing Community, Economy and Environment
  • Tools for Ongoing Collaboration and Improving Planning Integration
  • Successes and Challenges - Past, Present, Future
