Notices include a summary of the proposed action, and written comments may be submitted before the end of the comment period. Comments will be included in the recommendation to the DWR director or to the Environmental Management Commission for a final decision.

Meetings are opportunities to learn more about a division action or proposal and discuss it with staff and others who are interested.

Hearings are held to gather oral and written comments from the public on a proposed action. Notices of public hearings are published at least 30 days before the hearing occurs. Comments gathered at the hearing or sent to DWR through the mail or email are included in the hearing record presented to the Environmental Management Commission or the division director.

How do I use the DWR Public Calendar?
Public events are sortable by the date; type of event - such as a notice, hearing or meeting; the county or river basin affected (including multiple or all), and the program within DWR that the proposed action affects. After locating an event or notice you would like to know more about, click on the corresponding date. A page will display that has contact information, a summary of the proposed action with important timelines and may include important supporting documents, maps, photos and web links.
