The Strategic Plan for Regional Water Supply sets commitments and identifies strategic priorities and actions, with a planning horizon to the year 2050 that will guide the future direction for the Regional Water Supply Service. The plan supports CRD Board priorities, provides context for water servicing policy, and aligns with other CRD strategies and plans.

Areas of focus include water supply system infrastructure investment, climate change adaptation impacts, preparing for emergency and post-disaster water supply, addressing changing trends in water demand and planning for the future use of the Leech Water Supply Area.

The first Strategic Plan for Regional Water Management was completed in 1999. The plan, updated in 2004 and 2012, focuses on water quality and watershed protection, options for demand management considering future service populations, and infrastructure priorities.
