NOTICE: State Water Board Racial Equity Action Plan – Final Draft Available Online

The State Water Board has reviewed and revised the draft Racial Equity Action Plan to reflect the feedback received during the public workshops, the public comment period that ended in October, and employee listening sessions.

The State Water Board’s 2023-2025 Racial Equity Action Plan is a compilation of goals, actions, and metrics intended to advance the organization’s efforts to create a future where we equitably preserve, enhance, and restore California’s water resources and drinking water for all Californians, regardless of race, and where Water Board employees at all organizational levels reflect the racial and ethnic diversity of California.
