This coming November, California voters will have the opportunity to support Proposition 3, a measure that would invest $8.877 billion in water infrastructure and programs throughout the state. Prop 3, called the Water Supply and Water Quality Act of 2018, would provide funds to address a host of California’s critical water priorities, including safe drinking water, wastewater recycling, sustainable groundwater management, watershed restoration and fish and wildlife habitat conservation.

California Governor Jerry Brown, Legislative leadership and a bipartisan group of legislators last week dropped the Safe and Affordable Drinking Water Fund as part of this year’s budget bill, but indicated that they will continue work on it through the summer. According to the Governor’s Department of Finance spokesperson H.D. Palmer, “The Legislature has indicated a commitment to continue discussions this summer. They recognize that this is a very important issue that will take some more time to work through.”
