College Lake Hydro Study: Through a grant from the CA Deptartment of Water Resources to the Pajaro River Watershed Integrated Regional Water Management (IRWM) group, the College Lake hydrology technical report provides additional information on multi-benefit project alternatives for College Lake to the agencies leading the various alternatives being proposed.

The process used a Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) to provide technical input throughout the two year process of gathering field data, by developing a hydrologic model, evaluating alternatives, gaining stakeholder input, and developing the technical report. In this TAC, representatives from diverse areas of interest were consulted and provided input to the report throughout its development. In addition, various sub-committees were formed to gain more focused input on resource interests, such as fish, waterfowl and agriculture.
