Shouldn’t we be focusing more on water conservation and recycling than getting new, expensive water sources?
The WTWP emphatically endorses water conservation – the most cost-effective water supply is almost always existing water sources that are conserved. All of the cities have active and robust conservation programs, and each city either has or is developing a water reuse program. Combining conservation measures and developing new water sources to address future water needs is the best way to ensure an adequate, long-term water supply for our three cities. However, conservation alone will not create the water supply needed to serve the partnership’s future water needs.
