23-605BPU 13.1Study Results for the Water Supply Alternatives PlanBPU- Agenda ItemSTUDY RESULTS FOR THE WATER SUPPLY ALTERNATIVES PLAN Santa Rosa Water wishes to diversify and increase its potable urban water supply portfolio to enhance its resiliency during Sonoma Water supply shortages (particularly during droughts) or service interruptions that could occur in catastrophic events. With expertise and assistance from Woodard & Curran, the project team has completed a study of 18 water supply sources to assess their feasibility as new supply options. The team also developed four portfolio alternatives (mixes of the most feasible water supply options). In separate meetings, the study results and the draft portfolio alternatives were presented to the Water Team, the external Stakeholder Group, and the community to seek their input. The feasibility study Technical Memorandum and a narrative description of the Draft Portfolios were revised to integrate the comments received. Staff and the consulting team will present the study findings and draft portfolios to the Board of Public Utilities to seek input before developing a Draft Water Supply Alternatives Plan.   Action details Video Video
