Ever since the earliest days of permanent settlement in the arid San Diego region, securing reliable water supplies has been an issue of critical importance. The San Diego region's water needs are expected to continue to grow requiring an additional 200,000 AF of water by 2010. The San Diego County Water Authority is in the midst of a comprehensive water resources planning effort which will determine the directions the agency will go to meet future demands and develop policies and implementation programs to implement the agency's plans.
