Paso Robles Water Integrity Network PAC

To be Informed is to be Forewarned!

PR-WIN believes in educating residents about the laws regarding their water rights and encouraging an open and honest discussion on issues related to water banking, paper water, sustainability and new taxes. PR-WIN believes that personal decisions made by landowners about their own groundwater use is the only true local control. Informed citizens will not make irreversible decisions that can hurt them and the Paso Robles Groundwater basin in so many ways like a bloated government bureaucracy can and will.
