The Water Agency is committed to protecting the environment.
We partner with local water suppliers to provide water conservation programs that help save water by using it more effectively and efficiently.
In 2006, the Water Agency committed to the goal of operating a Carbon Free Water System by 2015. We are well on our way towards meeting that goal.
The Russian River Biological Opinion is a federally mandated 15-year blueprint to save endangered fish and ensure our water supply.
Our Environmental Resources staff work to improve the native fish resources of the Russian River and its tributaries by conducting research and coordinating fishery enhancement projects.
Environmental Resources staff also provides support and documentation in complying with various federal, state, and local environmental laws and regulations for Water Agency projects.
The Water Agency is developing a forward-looking climate adaptation plan to serve as a roadmap for the Water Agency's assessment of climate risks and potential adaptation strategies related to its water supply, sanitation, and flood control infrastructure and operations.
