Presentation Overview:

The panel will discuss practical approaches for public water agencies to use the SB 610 Water Supply Assessment and CEQA process and SB 221 Water Sufficiency Verification process to help ensure that new land development projects are supported by adequate water supplies. Topics include how to document use of conservation design to minimize project water demand, project support for off-site conservation to reduce net project demand, use of recycled water, new groundwater development and water transfers to augment supply availability.  Techniques for working with land-use agencies will be covered, and an update on case law governing CEQA review of water supply impacts will be provided.
