San Diego Region - Community Outreach

The San Diego Water Board is committed to informing, improving, and reshaping our relationships with the communities we serve. Our community outreach goals include making the San Diego Water Board more readily accessible to the public, significantly increasing the public's opportunities to provide input, and developing relationships that are mutually informative and beneficial.

The San Diego Water Board's Practical Vision and Community Outreach Strategy guide our community outreach goals. We are committed to improve our communication with the public using our website, social media, and public forums, working to ensure the information we share with the public is easily accessible. This webpage serves as the San Diego Water Board's hub for community outreach information and a bulletin board for upcoming community events.
