Our mission for managing our watersheds is to provide the best environment for the production, collection, and storage of the highest quality water for the City and County of San Francisco and suburban customers. We seek to accomplish this by developing, implementing, and monitoring resource management programs which address all watershed activities. Watershed management programs will apply best management practices for the protection of water and natural resources and their conservation, enhancement, restoration, and maintenance while balancing financial costs and benefits.
The purpose of the Plans is to provide a framework for us to make consistent decisions and implement established goals and policies about the practices and procedures that are appropriate on our watershed lands. As the population of the Bay Area expands and water regulations become increasingly strict, future generations will be challenged to provide a clean and reliable water supply. Paramount to maintaining high quality water and protecting water supplies in the long term is control over watershed activities and preservation of watershed resources.
