Update on the 2017 Water Supply Master Plan and Alternative Water Supply Strategies.

Receive and discuss information on alternative water supply strategies for the 2017 Water Supply Master Plan.

The Board received and discussed information on the Water Supply Master Plan update on January 31, 2017. The topics included the long-term water supply outlook, water supply reliability risk assessment, costs and yields for various projects and programs being evaluated as part of the Water Supply Master Plan update, preliminary analysis results, and Expert Panel input on work to date.

The Board provided direction to staff in several areas, which are summarized in Attachment 1. Based on that direction, staff refined and expanded the list of projects that are being evaluated, developed alternative water supply strategies (or portfolios of projects), worked with a consultant to develop a survey to get public input on the level of service, and met with the Expert Panel. This memorandum summarizes that work, requests Board input on the initial list of alternative water supply strategies, provides an update on input on the level of service goal, and provides an update on next steps.

In addition, the Expert Panel, consisting of Paula J. Landis, P.E., Ed Maurer, Ph.D. and David Mitchell, will be available to provide comments on staff's work to date and on the Water Supply Master Plan process, and be available to answer questions from the Board. Ms. Landis is the former executive officer of the California Water Commission. Dr. Maurer is a Professor of Civil Engineering at Santa Clara University. Mr. Mitchell is cofounder and principal of M.Cubed ("Policy Analysis for the Public and Private Sectors").
