Why MORE is Needed

The MORE WATER Project is needed to assure sustainable water supplies for current and future residents. Almost 700,000 people currently reside in San Joaquin County, a figure that is expected to double by 2040. In addition, opportunities to provide this water are heavily constrained by current uses and availability. Much of the region’s water has been developed for use outside of the region.

The region is currently dependent on groundwater for about 60% of its supply. More

Groundwater overdraft continues to put the City of Stockton’s drinking water supply in jeopardy. More

Delta water quantity and quality is often inadequate for agricultural uses. More

New supply is vital to sustain future social, economic and social viability. More
