Regional Framework Initiative
Withlacoochee Regional Water Supply Authority (WRWSA)
A key recommendation from the Phase II report was the establishment of a “regional framework” for future water supply development. The framework is a plan that promotes regional and sub-regional water supply development with the objective of maximizing traditional groundwater supplies while minimizing economic and environmental impacts. It also considers alternative water supplies in the region in a manner that minimizes disruption by planning for its inevitable introduction into the region’s water supply. The study contemplates AWS/traditional water supplies identified in previous planning projects and considers potential users and probable routes that “tie” together these projects with end customers. The Regional Framework is the springboard in the discussions of collaborative water supply development between WRWSA members.
