This graphic was the result of several weeks of research and interviews with water agencies on California’s Central Coast. I worked closely with the heads of multiple agencies to create a detailed picture of every agency involved in local water policy. For clarity and brevity, this map does not include any public health agencies or sanitation districts. Once published, I received requests for this graphic from public agencies including the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS). I learned the document I had produced was unique and something the government bodies involved were eager to have.
