WaterNext Campaign: A Vital Project on the Path to Construction
The Delta Conveyance project is a landmark investment in the state’s aging water infrastructure — and a vital project for California’s future. This project will modernize  and upgrade a key section of the State Water Project, which serves as the state’s primary  water delivery system, by constructing a tunnel to move water supplies underneath the fragile Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta ecosystem rather than through it. This state-of-the-art water conveyance solution will ensure that nearly 27 million Californians will have clean, reliable and  affordable water for generations to come.

TOWARD WATER SUPPLY RESILIENCE

A key recommendation of Governor Newsom’s draft Water Resilience Portfolio, the single-tunnel modern conveyance solution has been studied and discussed for more than a decade.

N New environmental review and planning process launched in January 2020

Work completed on previous iterations of this project can be used to streamline the planning process for Delta Conveyance. Among these are:

  • Received and addressed input from more than 31,000 individuals and organizations across California
  • Established oversight agencies to finance and construct project
  • Initiated contracting for executive director, engineering, right-of-way, real estate and geotechnical services

Lawn Dude Campaign:  Conserve, Conserve, Conserve!

Southern California has invested more than $12 billion in conservation and local supply projects since 1995.

 

The drought is far from over – and Lawn Dude has a plan to tackle it head on with his conservation campaign. But this time, he needs your help!  Take Lawn Dude’s campaign pledge to “Conserve, Conserve, Conserve!” during the hot summer months and help the Dude make up for El Niño’s broken promises.

Take Lawn Dude’s conservation campaign pledge:  Conserve, Conserve, Conserve!

Check your local water agency’s conservation targets
Reduce your water use to meet your local target

Take it off, take it all off!
Consider removing your lawn and replacing it with turf

Lay off the sauce!
Limit the number of days you water outdoors

Embrace a succulent new style!
Replace water-hungry grass with drought-tolerant landscaping

Kick grass and take names!
Spread the word – have your family and friends take the conservation pledge

Keep up with Lawn Dude on the campaign trail by following him on Twitter: @Lawn_Dude.

SCWC and Clear Channel Outdoor Americas (CCOA) united to help Lawn Dude out with his campaign. Thanks to their generosity, you will find Lawn Dude on digital billboards across Southern California.
