SCWC Responds to Governor Brown’s State of State Address
Governor Highlights Balanced Approach Needed to Secure Statewide Water Supply
Los Angeles, CA – Governor Jerry Brown today delivered California’s State of the State Address, in which he laid out his priorities for California in 2016. In his address, the Governor noted that California’s economy and all those who live and work in the state depend on a reliable and secure water supply. He underscored the importance of investing in our water conveyance system in addition to moving forward with other critical water supply projects such as stormwater capture, groundwater cleanup, recycling and desalination.
“We applaud the Governor for highlighting the critical need to invest in water infrastructure. In Southern California, we continue to move towards additional creative water supply enhancements like conservation efficiency, stormwater capture, recycling, desalination and groundwater cleanup but we need California WaterFix. At the end of the day, we must fix the Delta because it’s the linchpin to California’s water planning.”
