Small Water Systems Assistance Program

IRWMP Support Team Subcommittee for Small Water Systems and Disadvantaged Communities

The Small Water Systems and Disadvantaged Communities Sub-Committee (SWS/DAC) was formed specifically by the IRWM Plan Project Team to focus on the needs of small water systems which include any agency involved in water resources (small water systems) and economically disadvantaged communities systems.  The inclusion and participation of DAC’s is considered essential to the Mojave IRWM Plan process, as more than half of the Region qualifies as disadvantaged.  DACs within the IRWM planning region include both rural and urban areas.  However, not all small water systems are in DAC communities.
