The ability of water purveyors to meet their agricultural, municipal and industrial water needs has always been dependant on highly variable climatic conditions and increasing demand. This is of special concern in arid regions of the west and particularly in California. In recent years, environmental concerns and regulations have significantly reduced the amount of water available to water agencies. Further constraints on the overall water supply availability for urban and agricultural needs are likely.
To face these challenges, water agencies are working with their neighbors, integrating their resources, and managing their water assets at the regional level to improve water supply reliability in their region as a whole.
GEI’s water resources engineers are experienced in helping water managers to develop integrated regional water management plans to address their water management challenges in an efficient and effective manner so that they may continue to provide safe, dependable, and economical water supplies to their customers.
