However, Valley Water is still considering investing in new water supplies to mitigate potential impacts of climate change and future regulations on existing supplies. This MAP 2021 memorandum expands upon the MAP 2020 analysis by summarizing Valley Water's evaluation of how different projects may help ensure Valley Water maintains a reliable water supply into the future considering future climate, regulations, and updated project design and operation information. In addition, this memorandum provides updated project cost information and findings from an updated project risk assessment.
