CPUC ADOPTS 2010 WATER ACTION PLAN
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 28, 2010 - The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) today adopted a 2010 Water Action Plan to continue on the path the CPUC set in 2005 to apply regulatory best practices to the water utility industry and to establish water conservation as a top priority.
The 2010 Water Action Plan outlines the CPUC's goals in water regulation: Safe, high quality water; highly reliable water supplies; efficient use of water; and, reasonable rates and viable utilities.
Based on those objectives, the 2010 Water Action Plan discusses a roadmap of approximately 30 action items for the CPUC, including strengthening the CPUC's relationship with the California Department of Public Health and the State Water Resources Control Board; and developing leak-detection programs.
"I think it is a valuable effort for our Division of Water and Audits to list its principles and objectives, and then to list out a set of action items from time to time. It helps to focus the troops as they deal with their daily ration of new and continuing issues," said CPUC Commissioner John A. Bohn.
The 2010 Water Action Plan (and the 2005 Plan) is available at: http://www.cpuc.ca.gov/PUC/hottopics/3Water/051109_wateractionplan.htm.
