Project furthers DAC involvement in the IRWM process in multiple ways. The project will include outreach activities which will improve DAC engagement in the IRWM process. In addition, the governance structure of the Eastern San Joaquin IRWM Region will be reevaluated in order to ensure DAC participation. Work in this project will also help DACs overcome obstacles to communicating their needs as DAC and feedback will be directly solicited through multiple aspects of the task. The results achieved through this work qualify as desired outcomes as stated in the DACI Program RFP. Project will directly develop a project that will benefit DACs and advance the selected project towards implementation.
