AVEK water supply

To reduce its dependence on the State Water Project, which delivers water to much of the state via the California Aqueduct, the Antelope Valley-East Kern Water Agency plans to rely more heavily on water stored underground during wet years.

PALMDALE — Water suppliers will rely on water stored underground during wet years to ensure adequate supplies for the Valley during dry years, according to a plan presented Tuesday.

The Antelope Valley-East Kern Water Agency, a water wholesaler which supplies State Water Project water to providers across the Valley, detailed its projected demand and supplies for the next 25 years in the Urban Water Management Plan.
