2018 Future Supply Actions Funding Page
Metropolitan's 2010 Integrated Resources Plan (2010 IRP) established Future Supply Actions (Previously known as Foundational Actions) as preliminary, low-risk actions the region could take now to prepare for future uncertainties such as climate change. Future Supply Actions (FSA) are focused on removing barriers to the development of groundwater, recycling, seawater desalination and stormwater supplies so that the regional can accelerate the implementation of these resources should the need arise. In 2013, Metropolitan's Board approved jump-starting Future Supply Actions by authorizing funding for member agency studies addressing critical barriers to the four local supplies.
