Working together for a sustainable future

The purpose of the Upper Santa Ana River Sustainable Resources Alliance is to enable the water resource agencies to continue to provide and maintain a secure source of water for the residents and businesses in the watershed, and to conserve and maintain natural rivers and streams that provide habitat for a diversity of unique and rare species in the watershed.

The Alliance supports a fully integrated environmental compliance program, including a Habitat Conservation Plan, tributaries restoration, mitigation banking, as well as other environmental permitting efforts throughout the region.

About the HCP

The Upper SAR HCP will specify how species and their habitats will be protected and managed in the future and will provide the incidental take permits needed by the water resource agencies under the federal and State endangered species acts to maintain, operate, and improve their water resource infrastructure.
