WaterTalks is a public program designed to generate and increase community involvement in planning a sustainable water future for California.   Its goal is to explore the strengths and opportunities of 128 communities in the Los Angeles and Ventura counties facing ongoing economic and environmental distress, and to gather input to prioritize and recommend water-related projects based on issues of greatest concern.  

WaterTalks aims to ensure that regional water resource management considers the health, safety, welfare, and resiliency of lower-income community members.

To do so, WaterTalks is providing a series of community events for the benefit of local residents to do the following:

  1. Raise questions and concerns about their water-related issues
  2. Provide crucial input regarding their community’s water needs, possible solutions
  3. Learn about the State’s most current water related topics.


These include drinking water, water conservation, flood management, drainage, vector control, access to parks and recreation, and the overall health of our watersheds.

WaterTalks is funded through the California Department of Water Resources. 

In 2014, voters approved “The Water Quality, Supply, and Infrastructure Improvement Act” – Proposition 1 – to meet the State’s long-term water needs. Proposition 1 funds an array of sustainable water-related projects, including:

  • drinking water protection
  • public water system improvements
  • water recycling
  • wastewater treatment
  • drought relief
  • emergency water supply management
  • watershed protection

 The Los Angeles-Ventura Funding Area received $98 million in Proposition 1 funding.

10% ($9.8M) is dedicated to planning and outreach in environmentally distressed communities.
