Perspectives from local leaders:

"We recognize that climate change could have substantial impacts on the reliability of our region’s water supply, and we have incorporated adaptation strategies into our region’s long-term water management plan. Our strategy to diversify our water supply sources – through conservation, water transfers, recycling, seawater desalination, and storage and conveyance projects – is providing our region with increased protection from climate-related impacts such as droughts."
