The Russian River Water Forum is a collaborative effort initiated by Sonoma Water and a collection of regional partners with funding from the California Department of Water Resources.

The Water Forum seeks to identify water-supply resiliency solutions that respond to PG&E’s planned decommissioning of the Potter Valley Project while protecting Tribal interests and supporting the stewardship of fisheries, water quality, and recreation in the Russian River and Eel River basins. More broadly, the Water Forum supports ongoing regional collaboration on water supply and watershed restoration issues in the Russian River and Eel River basins.

The Water Forum is supported by a Planning Group representing a cross-section of interests in Sonoma, Mendocino, Lake, and Humboldt Counties.

The Water Forum also serves as a venue for inclusive community engagement, outreach, and education on these topics. Visit our Get Involved page to learn more.
