The WSIP is structured to cost-effectively meet water quality requirements, improve seismic and delivery reliability through the year 2030, and meet water supply objectives until the year 2018.
Section 1 of the attached report describes the overall progress made on the WSIP’s Regional Program during FY 2012-2013 (July 1, 2012 through June 30, 2013) and Section 2 focuses on the major programmatic initiatives undertaken during that time period.
