The OCWP Public Outreach Survey asks participants, “In the area where you live, how concerned are you about water shortages occurring in the next 20 to 50 years?” To date, nearly all participants expressed some level of concern about future water availability! Over the next few weeks Team OCWP will be presenting our latest projections on local water availability in our Round 3 regional meetings. We hope you'll join us to discuss potential strategies to meet your future needs!
