nder the State Water Resources Control Board and the leadership of its Governor appointed board members, the Lahontan Regional Water Quality Control Board (Water Board) works to preserve and restore the quality of California’s water resources. The Water Board does this by regulating waste discharges to surface and groundwater resources and implements the region’s Water Quality Control Plan (Basin Plan), which focuses on water quality issues specific to the Lahontan region.

Footprint: The Water Board oversees a region covering 33,131 square miles of the eastern side of the state, which contains a diverse range of landscapes and habitats. The region’s streams, rivers and lakes carry water to the Western states’ Great Basin and, via diversion, to Southern California. Approximately 85 percent of lands in the region are federally managed, and 77 percent of the region is undeveloped. Many of the waters found in the region are pristine and support diverse plant and animal communities.

• Structure: The region is divided into two basins: the North Lahontan Basin, administered by the South Lake Tahoe office, and the South Lahontan Basin, which is administered by the Victorville office. Both offices work together as custodians of the waters in the region and include teams of engineers, geologists and scientists. The Water Board strives to protect and restore supplies of clean water, recreational opportunities, wildlife health and diversity, and agricultural and industrial opportunities for communities in the region. Water quality in the region is protected through the development of regulations and permitting processes based on scientific research, inspecting permitted facilities and, if necessary, taking enforcement actions against entities violating state or federal water laws.
