The Public Water Access Advisory Board (PWAAB)'s charge is to advise, monitor and coordinate state agency public access efforts including the Statewide Public Access Program. The Board is in support of the Fish and Game Department's Public Access Program to maximize these state ownerships on public water for the public's benefit.

 

Public Water Access Advisory Board members have worked on a number of important access endeavors over the years, becoming a central repository for access information and fostering a communal effort between state agencies that deal in public access.
