Although we reliably serve drinking water to 2.7 million Bay Area customers, our water supplies are vulnerable over the long term. Issues out of our control will have a direct impact on our ability to continue to meet the needs of our customers. These include global climate change, population growth, and regulations that will reduce the amount of water we can use from some of our current sources.
As good stewards of the resources in our care, we must find new sources of water supply. Finding new sources of water is incredibly complicated here in the Bay Area and takes decades to plan and design. We have worked for years and have already brought new water supply resources online such as groundwater, recycled water, and onsite reuse.
