OCWD believes in open and honest government. It strives to be clear about the motivations and standards driving its activities, policy decisions and investments.
OCWD ensures that a proposed project complies with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and that the appropriate level of CEQA documentation is prepared. CEQA is a multi-purpose law in the State of California that is intended to inform decision makers and the public of the environmental consequences of projects, involve the public in decision-making related to environmental effects, and to prevent needless environmental damage. It is a tool to evaluate the potential impacts on the environment by a proposed project. CEQA review is required for any project undertaken by a public agency.
