Chimney Hollow Reservoir will Provide for 12 Participants
The Chimney Hollow Reservoir Project will benefit nine cities, two water districts and a power provider. By 2050, these water providers' combined population will have far more than doubled what it was in 2005, to about 825,000 people. Water demand projections show a shortage in supply of 64,000 acre-feet in 2030 and 110,000 acre-feet by 2050.
To address this shortage, participants are relying on multiple approaches: conservation, reuse and additional storage — including building Chimney Hollow Reservoir.
