Water - Policy
San Diego County is at a crossroads in its water policy. A clean, adequate water supply is the lifeblood of our region’s quality of life and economy. Extended droughts, a growing population, crumbling infrastructure, legal disputes and concerns about threatened species have put San Diego County’s water supplies at risk, and resulted in escalating water prices. We can’t wait any longer to develop a comprehensive vision and action plan to deal with our water challenges.
Equinox Center’s H2Overview project provides balanced, easily accessible research and potential solutions to policy makers and community leaders about how we can use water more efficiently and develop more reliable, local, sources of water. Through a series of reports under the H2Overview umbrella, Equinox Center analyzes the complex issues surrounding potentially significant local water sources.
