The Mokelumne Watershed Interregional Sustainability Evaluation (MokeWISE) Program is being initiated by the Mokelumne-Amador-Calaveras and Eastern San Joaquin IRWM (Integrated Regional Water Management) Regions with funding from the California Department of Water Resources. MokeWISE has emerged following years of dialogue between a diverse set of stakeholders in the Upper and Lower Mokelumne River watersheds. The program, when concluded, is expected to yield a scientifically-based and broadly-supported water resources program that includes comprehensive and sustainable approaches to water resources management in the Mokelumne River watershed.
This program builds upon earlier interregional project concepts by expanding the scope to include a thorough, holistic evaluation of a wide array of water resource strategies that could be implemented to help balance water supplies and demands and sustain the environment. The program is funded by a grant from the California Department of Water Resources Proposition 84 Integrated Regional Water Management planning grant program.
