The unending work producing enough clean water for the area's 3.1 million residents now depends on the collaborative enterprise the city and county agencies and the San Diego County Water Authority use to improve quality water gains. Managing the water sources, and the supply taken from the 11 watershed areas found between the Pacific Ocean and the eastern forest mountain ridgeline, will involve decisions with the common waters that cross political jurisdictions.
Government collaborative work begun with the formation of the multi-jurisdictional regional water management group in 2010 takes up a greater management role.
Agencies in the region will follow the management plan in the 2013 San Diego Integrated Regional Water Management Plan the county board of supervisors approved last week.
Running water, taken from local rivers and water stores, and from the potable supply, can get treated as more reliable by local residents if the collaborative partnership plan now in the integrated plan first taken up in 2007 accomplishes the goal of agreeing to use regional water supply to most reliably serve residents.
Project Clean Water launched in 2010 to make collaboration on water quality more typical left plenty of work on partnerships in store.
San Diego's regional population is expected to grow to over 4 million people by 2025. Potable supply counts for 15 percent of the local water supply. Water and wastewater agencies will work together to guarantee the potable use is effective and the cost made easier to handle. Supplies, to last, need careful management of contamination from bacteria and toxic substances, and sustainable management of the community water holdings.
Riverways cross the jurisdiction lines the agencies use to take the district communities' water. Decisions to hand out supply, and set up regular clean water operations and supply production, for common use, will depend less on district holdings.
The board's approval of the multi-jurisdictional IRWM plan makes the region eligible for grant money from Prop 84. San Diego could get regular funding in the future.
