Water Reliability

Maintaining the Tri-Valley's Long Term Water Supply

Overview

Water reliability is the backbone of Zone 7’s relationship with the Tri-Valley community. We are the trusted conveyor of surface water for the region from the State Water Project and the state appointed guardian of our groundwater basin – roles we do not take lightly. We have a responsibility to our region not only to supply today’s residents with reliable water, but also to make sure future generations have that same level of trust in Zone 7.

Securing our water supply comes from a multitude of strategies, from managing our water rights for the mountain snow melt that comes to us through the Bay-Delta, to adding alternative conveyance infrastructure, and from building out the Chain of Lakes to capture and replenish our groundwater basin, to focusing on stormwater storage and conservation efforts. No matter the initiative, Zone 7 is working to ensure the Livermore-Amador Valley will have a long-term sustainable water supply. With careful strategic planning and sound investment, we are increasing our storage capacity and diversifying our water sources so that we are able to provide the Tri-Valley water it can rely on, now and in the future.
