Sonoma Water Survey
Help Update Sonoma Water’s Strategic Plan – Your Input Needed!

The Sonoma County Water Agency (Sonoma Water) is reviewing and updating our 5-year strategic plan. The purpose of the Strategic Plan is to provide a blueprint for Sonoma Water that includes our vision, a mission statement, with goals and measurable objectives, to guide Sonoma Water into the future. The Strategic Plan articulates priorities for Sonoma Water — including the opportunities to improve resilience to climate impacts and to better serve our customers. We invite you to take a few minutes to complete this brief survey (approximately 5 minutes).) Your input is important to us and will be used in shaping Sonoma Water’s Strategic Plan update. You can also visit our web site to learn of other ways to provide comments and to participate in Sonoma Water programs.
