If you want to comment on an item during the meeting, you will need to submit a virtual speaker card by following the instructions included below. A computer is not required to participate in the meeting; the public will also have the option to dial into the meeting by phone.

Special Virtual Speaker Card Instructions
Persons speaking at Santa Ana Water Board meetings are accustomed to filling out a speaker card. To allow for a more orderly process of identifying speakers in advance, the Santa Ana Water Board will use virtual speaker cards. The virtual speaker card will allow the Board Clerk to identify commenters interested in an item, locate them within the Zoom meeting waiting list, and unmute them so they can address the Board at the appropriate time.
To request to speak on any item at the July 30, 2020 and July 31, 2020 meeting, you must submit a virtual speaker card no later than 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, July 28, 2020. To register visit: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_om09HDi5SiGlJ8- DDLX2fw
If you do not submit the registration form by the deadline, please do so as soon as you can. You cannot participate in the Zoom meeting until you receive an email with the password. Please note, that commenters will generally be taken in the order of the receipt of the virtual speaker cards. Further, note that the Board Chair has the discretion to specify the order of commenters.
After you submit the online registration form, you will receive an email with the Zoom weblink and phone numbers to participate in the meeting. If you do not receive a confirmation email with the Zoom information after filling out the online registration form, please email Jeannie.Aguilar@waterboards.ca.gov or call 951-782-3285.
