Amador County is one of California's mountain counties of the western slope of the Sierra Nevada range in the north central portion of the state. The present population is estimated to be 31,000, but growth in the county is projected to continue into the 21st century. The focus of this paper is on the difficulties encountered by Amador County officials in planning for and attempting to develop a reliable water supply to provide for projected future growth, in the current regulatory and economic environment.
