Planning for Future Water Supply
Nina Nichols, Sanjit Kundu, Will Bailey and Tracy Bouvette


This chapter presents summaries of Drought & Water Supply Assessment participant responses related to planning for future water supply. Participants were asked to rate their ability to predict and meet future water demands, acquire new ground water and/or surface water supplies, maintain and upgrade infrastructure, manage water quality, coordinate operations, utilize cooperative agreements, and develop and fund future water projects – for both the short- and long-term planning horizons. In addition, every participant was asked to rate the relative importance of each of these water supply planning and development activities with respect to their organization.
