Water 2025 is an initiative launched by the Secretary of the Interior in the spring of 2003. The overarching goal of Water 2025 is to meet the challenge of preventing crisis and conflict over water in the West. To accomplish this goal, Water 2025 focuses Reclamations resources on areas in the West where conflict over water either currently exists or is likely to occur in the coming years. Water 2025 also sets forth a framework to identify problems and solutions focused on the geographic problem areas identified on the Potential Water Supply Crisis by 2025 , prior to a water crisis. System Optimization Reviews (SOR) are a new component of the Water 2025 Challenge Grant Program that is being initiated in Fiscal Year 2007 and Fiscal Year 2008. Through SORs, Reclamation will work with willing irrigation and water districts, western states, tribal water authorities, and other local entities with water delivery authority, to assess the potential for water management improvements in a given basin or district. The SOR will include the development of a plan of action with specific recommendations and performance measures for projects with significant potential to improve water management. The recommendations can include physical improvements, such as modernization of a water delivery system, or operational changes to improve efficiency or facilitate water transfers or water marketing, for example. The SOR may focus on a water basin, district, system, or a portion thereof.
