- Strategic Water Resources Plan Program
- The SWRP outlines a programmatic plan for developing and diversifying PWD's water supply over the next 25 years through 2035. The SWRP anticipates that during that time, despite the current economic recession, the population within its service area will double. Currently, existing supplies are inadequate to meet the projected demand of a growing population. The SWRP therefore establishes a strategy to match overall annual water demand on a year-to-year basis. The SWRP identifies a Recommended Water Resource Strategy that would provide increased water supply system when an individual source of water is unavailable or restricted. The proposed strategy calls for acquisition of additional imported supplies; new groundwater recharge and recovery facilities; aquifer storage and recovery wells; potential use of recycled water for agricultural irrigation, groundwater recharge, and other municipal and industrial end uses; expansion of conservation programs; and recovery of storage capacity in Littlerock Reservoir.
