California faces a water shortage crisis and so does our coastal mid-county community. Locally we are challenged with an overdrafted groundwater basin and seawater intrusion occurring at our coastline.  

In order to protect our endangered groundwater resources, ensure water reliability and resiliency to our customers, and prepare for climate change and other future challenges we may face, the District developed in 2015 an action-oriented Community Water Plan.  The Community Water Plan is based on community input, our Urban Water Management Plan,  and shall serve as the District's roadmap to meeting our goal of sustainability by 2040. Working together, we can protect our limited and precious water supply.... today and for future generations. 

Community Water Plan Components

This plan is multi-faceted and includes

Educating the community about water planning is key to protecting our groundwater basin, promoting water conservation and developing a supplemental supply.  A diversified water portfolio is essential to our ability to provide a reliable water supply, adapt to climate change impacts and meet water quality requirements.  Planning for our water future will allow us to protect the environment and maintain our community as a wonderful place to live and work.
