Proposition 1, the $7.5 billion state water bond, was approved by California’s voters last Tuesday and will provide $2.7 billion for much-needed water storage projects. ACEC California strongly supported this measure and partnered with the governor’s campaign to promote its passage. Thank you for all your hard work and help on this effort!
From a public relations perspective, ACEC California was successful in placing our viewpoint in The Stockton Record, as seen here.
President Mary Erchul’s statement of support for the water bond can be seen here.
This water bond is good for California overall, and now that the bond has passed, ACEC California will be working with both the legislature and administration to ensure that the monies are appropriated suitably and in the best interest of our members. California has been talking about the need for updated water infrastructure for years. Now it is time for solutions.
