THERE WATER IN YOUR FUTURE?
It’s difficult to imagine a future
without water. But
were it not for
continual careful planning, engineering and management of this most
vital resource, there would be little of it to speak of in semi-arid
Pasadena, much less the thriving economic and cultural center we are
fortunate to call the “Rose City.”
so much concern about current shortfalls in supply, and predictions of
long-term drought, PWP has
crafted its most comprehensive water resource plan ever. The
Plan (WIRP) of 2011
is our city’s blueprint
for ensuring reliable, cost-effective, and environmentally responsible
water supply for the next twenty-five years. It takes into consideration
available and alternative supplies, demand
forecasts, climate change and conservation.
