Agencies

The risk of losing surface water supplies is a major concern for many Sacramento regional water agencies. Some agencies rely entirely on the American River and many agencies will need to pump additional groundwater to meet demands during drier years. This project will help these agencies work together to address future drought conditions and water needs.
