This report, from the Pacific Institute in partnership with Community Water Center and Fresno State University, examines both an urban and a rural case: the Sacramento metropolitan area and the Tulare Lake Basin. The report indicates that a more specific discussion of developing affordability programs is critical for California. Additionally, more work is needed to address financing considerations for water systems and their technical, managerial, and financial capacity.
