In January 2009, ACWA released its policy principles, “Investing in Environmental and Economic Sustainability,”¬†expressing strong support for policies that promote significant improvements in both water supply reliability and ecosystem health.

The principles note that sustainability can be achieved only through comprehensive solutions that include conveyance improvements in the Delta and elsewhere, additional surface and groundwater storage, substantial investments in water use efficiency and local resources, and investments in habitat and actions that address all significant environmental stressors.
