Central Coast Water Board Vision and Priorities

The Central Coast Water Board’s Vision of Healthy Functioning Watersheds promotes healthy aquatic habitat, clean groundwater and proper land management.  The Central Coast Water Board encourages local agencies and organizations to promote healthy watersheds through grant funding opportunities that focus on the Central Coast Coast Water Boards.

The Central Coast Water Board identified the highest priorities for external projects as Low Impact Development (LID), Irrigation and Nutrient Management, Groundwater Recharge Area Protection, and Riparian Buffer Zone Designation and Protection.  Our "Priorities for External Projects" (hot link) summarizes these priorities, including the scope, scale, and key project elements.  Equally important is our focus on project performance and funding accountability.
