In April 2016, ACWA released “Recommendations for Improving Water Transfers and Access to Water Markets in California,” a suite of recommendations for improving the water transfer process and access to the voluntary water market, especially for smaller agencies.

ACWA’s recommendations were developed by a Water Market Technical Advisory Committee that included ACWA member agency representatives with special expertise in water transfers and representatives from the Public Policy Institute of California and the Environmental Defense Fund.
