To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the California Public Records Act (CPRA, and all sunshine ordinances applicable in your jurisdiction, if any), I hereby request from Department Of Water Resources ("Agency") the following records:
1. All CPRA requests (including all follow-ups, and no matter how received) prepared, owned, used or retained by your Agency, received between January 1, 2018 and the date of receipt of this request (inclusive).
2. All CPRA responses (including a copy of all responsive records and all follow-ups, and no matter how they were sent) prepared, owned, used or retained by your Agency, transmitted between January 1, 2018 and the date of receipt of this request.
3. Any logs, tracking spreadsheets, or similar of CPRA requests and responses showing items between January 1, 2018 and the date of receipt of this request
4. Any records showing official email addresses, phone numbers, employee names, job titles, and website URLs or other mechanisms used for receiving CPRA requests

Please consider these important notes, incorporated into our request:

A. ** We are specifically asking for ALL public records act requests and responses prepared, owned, used or retained by your Agency, whether they are for your own Agency, or other agencies that you may represent or work with.
If your Agency is an Office of Counsel, Clerk, Manager or other representative of a County, City, or other parent public agency, then we believe you handle CPRA requests for both your own Agency AND the parent agency and its other departments, councils, offices, boards, and other units, and we want all the CPRA requests/responses that go through your Agency. Furthermore, any requests or responses under any local sunshine ordinance applicable to your jurisdiction are included in "CPRA requests" and "CPRA responses." **

B. ** Every response you send or provide (including all responsive records) may be automatically and immediately visible on the MuckRock.com web service used to issue this request. **

C. Consider your exemption-waiver requirements under the CPRA (regarding records you have already disclosed previously) when responding to us (Govt Code 6254.5).

D. Consider your obligations under City of San Jose v. Superior Court (Smith), S218066 to search personal accounts/devices storing public records.

E. I would prefer the request fulfilled electronically, by e-mail attachment, using the original electronic format of all responsive records as required by the CPRA (Govt Code 6253.9), if at all possible; or uploaded directly to MuckRock.com using the instructions at the bottom of this email otherwise.

F. Note that if e-mail or text messages are included in the responsive records, we want a full copy () of the original e-mail or text messages including ALL headers and metadata (except those required to be redacted by law). If you convert e-mails to PDF or similar printed format, be certain to include ALL headers and metadata (not just the common from/to/subject/etc. headers).

G. Please send only those records available without any fees - since we have asked for electronic copies, we expect all will be available without fees. Nevertheless, for any records for which you would charge fees, instead of copies, please provide us the (free) statutorily-mandated CPRA determination of what records exist, so we may inspect them in person if we so choose to do so, and notify us of the expected costs if we wished to move forward with copies.

H. Please provide responsive records on a rolling basis as you approve/redact them for disclosure.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter.

I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 calendar days, as the statute requires.

It has been determined that DWR maintains records responsive to your request, however, DWR anticipates these records may require a significant amount of time to locate, assemble and review.  DWR is presently collecting and reviewing these records and estimates that the first set of records of a rolling production can be made available by June 1, 2019.

Please note that every effort will be made to provide you with responsive records as soon as feasible.
