About the Water Forum

The Water Forum is a diverse group of business and agricultural leaders, citizen groups, environmentalists, water managers, and local governments working together to balance coequal objectives:

Provide a reliable and safe water supply for the region’s economic health and planned development through to the year 2030; and Preserve the fishery, wildlife, recreational, and aesthetic values of the lower American River.

Now, more than 20 years later, the Sacramento region and Water Forum members have an impressive record of implementing farsighted water management solutions that have served to protect the river and foster regional vitality
