The Foothill Water Coalition (FWC) is a group of local water agencies representing the Southern California foothill area communites. United by the singular goal of developing innovative ways to provide supplemental, high-quality water to Southern California, FWC has come up with a plan. Its flagship program, known as the Water Supply Reliability Program (WSRP), will benefit more than 2 million residents in 41 cities located in one of the state’s fastest growing areas—along Southern California’s foothills, stretching from the San Gabriel Valley to the Inland Empire.

Collaboratively, FWC members are working with local and federal legislators to secure funding for the WSRP. Partial funding ($5 million) has been secured in the Water Resource Development Act (HR 1495), which was enacted in November 2007. Funding will be used to study the feasibility of constructing underground water storage facilities and pipeline.

The projects will be constructed and operated cooperatively by FWC member agencies. The feasibility study is scheduled to commence fall of 2008 and construction may begin as early as 2010.
