Abstract: The San Diego County Water Authority (Authority) is developing the Emergency Storage Project (ESP) to improve the reliability of the county's water supply in the event of an extreme emergency, such as a major earthquake. A thorough alternatives analysis and public involvement process is being undertaken. This has included the creation of a working committee comprised of a broad cross section of the community, whose members were invited to be active participants in the selection of the preferred alternative.
