Public Records Center
California's Constitution provides that the people of California have the right to access information concerning the conduct of the people's business. The Central Valley Water Board is committed to the prompt disclosure of records to the public upon request unless there is a specific reason not to do so.

Requests to View Public Records in Person
Files may be reviewed at the Board’s offices during regular office hours, which are generally weekdays from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., excluding holidays. Persons interested in reviewing or obtaining copies of public records are encouraged to make a file review appointment in advance. An appointment can be made by email, fax, telephone, or in person. File review requests can be made of the staff person that you are working with regarding a particular facility or site or can be directed to the public records coordinators listed below.
Please be aware that it is a crime to steal, remove, destroy, mutilate, deface, alter, or falsify government records. In some cases, Board staff may be assigned to observe the file review to protect the integrity of the records. Your assistance in maintaining the integrity of the Board's records is appreciated.
Requests for Copies of Public Records
The Boards will make copies of any disclosable records upon request. The California Public Records Act provides that copies of records will be made promptly available upon payment of fees that cover the direct costs of duplication. Members of the public may also pay bonded copy service companies to come to the Board office to make copies. If you wish to bring your own copier to the Board’s offices, we would appreciate it if you would call in advance to make arrangements, but advance arrangements are not required.
How Do Members of the Public Obtain Access to Public Records?
Requests to inspect or to obtain a copy of a public record should be made to the staff person that you are working with regarding a particular facility or site or to the public records coordinators at the appropriate Board office.
