The Coordinated Water System Plan (CWSP) process is a state mandated management tool created to get agencies and utilities to jointly address problems of current and domestic/municipal water supply, based on local needs and resources. The experiences in three counties, Island and Snohomish and King, illustrate how the process works in situations where the water availability and population differ.
