Public Records Act & SB 272

Californians have the right under the California Public Records Act and the California Constitution to access public information maintained by local and state government agencies. OMWD has established guidelines to ensure that both employees and members of the public fully understand and are afforded the opportunity to use their right to inspect and obtain copies of public records.
