Historical demand can no longer dictate water supply planning. The lessons learned in California are that changes in political and social attitudes require new approaches. Taxpayers are no longer willing to pay for massive projects, and there is a new willingness to conserve water. Risk management and the economic impact of departing from traditional water supply planning are discussed.
