The Water Availability Analysis (WWA)

Bill Hocker | Jan 2, 2015

On Wednesday, Jan. 9th, the county Planning Commission will hear the staff recommendation to create a new discretionary Water Availability Analysis to be applied to new projects coming through the County planning department. It begins to counter the formulaic approach used in the past that was sufficient for a county not terribly concerned about its future water supply. Things have changed. It is a major step forward, particularly in the watershed areas where neighbors are becoming concerned that their life sustaining water is being sucked up to enable new vineyard and wine-tourism developments.
