WaterFuture Initiative

WaterFuture is an ambitious, long-term suite of actions for water resource sustainability in the greater Sacramento region, including the counties of El Dorado, Placer and Sacramento, through infrastructure and operational improvements, policy changes and improved water efficiency.

Recent statewide drought conditions and regulatory actions have exposed significant threats to the region’s water resources. Sacramento area water managers for years have been working on long-term plans to manage water resources to meet demands for urban, rural, agricultural and environmental purposes. Those plans are now accelerated.

Our region is poised to significantly improve its regional water reliability projects over the next two decades.  As we complete the components of WaterFuture over time, we will provide for the lasting health of our community’s economy, environment and quality of life.
