Attendees learn about important legal developments arising from the integration of water supply and land-use planning, including the SB 610 Water Supply Assessment law, the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and the SB 221 Water Sufficiency Verification law. Attendees also learn how short-term and long-term uncertainties in the availability of water from existing and planned future sources affect compliance with SB 610, CEQA and SB 221. Panelists show attendees about tools for managing water supply uncertainty under SB 610, CEQA and SB 221, with examples and perspectives on implementation issues for water agencies, land-use agencies and development project proponents. Tools include aggressive conservation and use of recycled water, grey water or rain water either within a proposed development project or elsewhere in the service area as an offset to new project demand.
