Sound Planning is the Foundation of Reliable Services

Environmental and political challenges are decreasing the reliability of the State Water Project, which supplies 80 percent of our drinking water. DSRSD began diversifying its water supplies in the 1990s through efficiency and water recycling. Current efforts focus on further diversification, including studying the feasibility of potable reuse and exploring options for desalination with other Bay Area water agencies.

In addition to ensuring reliable water supplies, the District must ensure that pipes, pumps, treatment plants, and sewer systems are proactively maintained and upgraded. Fees and rates provide for current operations and infrastructure maintenance, capital investments, and a highly-qualified and trained workforce.
