Water is one of most precious resources. One that is particularly important to the future of San Diego as southern California is a desert region.

At the end of two very long water pipes and aqueducts we are dependent on these water ways supply the majority of our water from the Colorado River and State Water Project.  Considering both of these cross the San Andreas Fault, and geologists say we are due for a major shakeup what is our back up plan? Will desalinization save us? After 10 years, we have approved a desalination plant that will supply about 10% of our needs, but at what cost?

How do we currently use our water? Can we implement conservation strategy to make better use of the water we have? Come join in the conversation as we discuss the future of water in the region.
