Cosumnes, American, Bear & Yuba Integrated Regional Water Management Group

Cosumnes American Bear & Yuba (CABY) Integrated Regional Water Management group is a collaborative planning effort that adopted an Integrated Regional Water Management Plan (IRWMP) in December 2006, in response to the passage of Proposition 50. CABY comprises more than 30 organizations, representing water supply, conservation, recreation, agriculture, and community interests, as well as federal and local government. CABY functions as a vehicle to bring funding into the region, as well as bringing diverse stakeholders together.  Priorities are water quality (maintaining and restoring), water quantity (for both people and the environment, in CABY and statewide), and environmental quality (restoration and preservation).
