Tri-Valley Water Partners Launch New Website and Outreach Program

The Tri-Valley Water Partners have launched www.trivalleywater.org, a new website focused on the region’s water supply reliability. The partners are a collaborative effort between the Tri-Valley's water wholesaler, Zone 7 Water Agency (Zone 7), and local water retailers California Water Service (Cal Water), the City of Livermore, the City of Pleasanton, and Dublin San Ramon Services District. 

Under the guidance of the Tri-Valley Water Liaison Committee comprised of elected officials from the Tri-Valley Water Partners, it was agreed the water supply reliability options identified in the study needed continued evaluation, and a community outreach program to educate Tri-Valley residents and businesses about the region's water supply challenges and potential solutions needed to be developed. This new website and an accompanying “Water’s Journey” video explaining the region’s water supply support the launch of this new outreach program. 

When visiting www.trivalleywater.org, users will learn about their water’s journey to homes and businesses. The site also covers water supply challenges, and potential solutions including Sites Reservoir and Delta Conveyance, as well as more local solutions like Los Vaqueros Reservoir Expansion, potable reuse and regional desalination.

Read the Delta Conveyance Project Draft Environmental Impact Report 

The Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the Delta Conveyance Project is available for review and comment. The Department of Water Resources’ environmental review process is an opportunity to examine the project anew and share your thoughts.  

The proposed Delta Conveyance Project would modernize the State Water Project which delivers approximately 70 percent of the Tri-Valley's water supply.  

The proposed Project would help address climate change, sea level rise and earthquake risk, would increase California’s ability to capture Sierra stormwater when it is available and when diversions don’t harm sensitive fish. It would also help to replenish groundwater basins and reservoirs. Storage is key to providing reliable water in California's unpredictable climate.  

Visit deltaconveyanceproject.com to view the EIR and make comments. 

The Tri-Valley Hits the Ball out of the Park on Water Conservation in July

Thank you to the Tri-Valley community for achieving a 22 percent conservation rate for the month of July! Your water-saving habits are making a huge impact and difference. As we continue through the driest months of the year, please keep up those water-saving habits — every drop counts!  

Maximize your indoor and outdoor water savings by doing the following:  

  • Upgrade your landscape with drip irrigation systems. 

  • Limit outdoor watering to only three days a week. 

  • Set your irrigation to run only during the evening and early mornings. 

  • Consider using our rebate program to convert your lawn to a water-wise garden — fall is the perfect time to do it!
