In celebration of Water Awareness Month, the San Diego County Water Authority is launching the Brought to You by Water Photo Contest to highlight the value of water in our region.
The San Diego County Water Authority is dedicated to identifying cutting-edge technologies that will help continue to manage the region’s diverse water supplies and improve long-term stewardship of the region’s most precious natural resource.
