  • Conjunctive use projects
  • Local and regional surface water

Projects must help meet certain public benefit criteria to be considered for funding. Public benefit criteria include one or more of the areas below.

  • Improved river water quality or groundwater quality
  • Improving emergency response to ensure continued water exports during a crisis
  • Benefits to flood control
  • Recreational Purposes

Improving the flexibility of the water storage system can help ensure that water remains available for critical ecosystem and supply needs during dry years.

Examples of the storage projects that might benefit the South Coast Region include:
