Water recycling, groundwater recovery, and innovation in water-saving devices, technologies, and strategies bring greater water supply reliability to Southern California. Metropolitan supports the development and use of recycled water and recovered groundwater by providing incentives to local agencies through the Local Resources Program. Metropolitan encourages innovation by providing competitive grants through the Innovative Conservation Program. They address regional funding needs for actions that reduce barriers to future water resource production through their Future Supply Actions Funding Program.
Beginning early 2020, this program will provide financial incentives to develop, monitor and assess new or existing direct-use stormwater projects across the district's service area.
Metropolitan’s Innovative Conservation Program Funding provides funding in cooperation with the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, Southern Nevada Water Authority.
Innovation is a driving force in Southern California, bringing new technologies and approaches to help meet the water resource challenges we face.
