Setting the vision for Santa Barbara’s water future
By June 2021, Water Vision Santa Barbara aims to develop the City’s water supply and management plan for the next 30 years. The City is using a rigorous technical process and inclusive stakeholder engagement approach to create an equitable, resilient, environmentally-friendly plan that reflects the community’s values.
The resulting Water Vision Santa Barbara plan will provide the City with a water supply portfolio and an approach to sustainably manage the City’s water supplies for the next 30 years.
We’re setting the vision for a water future that is:
RESILIENT to evolving risks and challenges.
DIVERSE to provide ample reliability in uncertain times.
AFFORDABLE to ensure equitable access to safe drinking water for our community.
ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY to protect our waterways, wildlife and ecosystems.
FORWARD-THINKING with cost-effective operations and adaptable technology.
