Bay Area Integrated Regional Water Management Plan

The Bay Area Integrated Regional Management Plan is a nine-county effort to coordinate and improve water supply reliability, protect water quality, manage flood protection, maintain public health standards, protect habitat and watershed resources, and enhance the overall health of the bay. We've developed this portal as a digital library and collaboration space for the IRWMP organization. The site catalogs more than 200 project listings and provides a secure intranet workspace for each. These tools were so effecitve that the IRWMP decided to provide secure workspaces to the Bay Area Clean Water Agencies project. We've also built a custom tool for generating e-mail updates of new site content. The open source software developed in this project is now being reused be several other IRWMP collaboratives in California.
