Drought conditions necessitate attention to the every aspect of the water system in California. State leadership is proposing a $5.1 billion response effort to improve the infrastructure for drinking water, wastewater, ground water and water recycling.
Infrastructure for Drought Mitigation
Attention to drought and the underlying issues impacting water security is especially critical in California. Leadership’s proposal, part of the state’s overall “Comeback Plan,” would commit $5.1 billion over four years. The Associated General Contractors of California have commended the proposal to invest in water infrastructure while awaiting more details about the plan.
