In 2006, the W Water Resource Association of Yolo County (WRA) received a $500,000 Proposition 50 grant to develop an IRWMP for the region. The District served as the fiscal agent for the project. The WRA is a coalition of local agencies including the cities of Woodland, Davis, West Sacramento, Winters, the University of CA Davis, Yolo County, Reclamation District 2035, Dunnigan Water District and the Yolo County Flood Control & Water Conservation District. The Yolo County IRWMP was completed in April 2007 after a lengthy public outreach process. The plan identified and prioritized water resource issues and projects in five categories:
- Water supply and drought preparedness
- Water quality
- Flood control and storm drainage
- Riparian and aquatic ecosystem enhancement
