  • During December a Frequently-Asked-Questions (FAQs) section was added to the SRWA website. The new section can be viewed here- http://stanrwa.org/project/freqently-asked-questions-faqs

  • The Program Management team continues to coordinate easement and Right of Way agreements with affected landowners.
