On Wednesday the California Water Commission increased potential funding for the seven water storage projects in the Water Storage Investment Program.

The Commission voted to increase the potential funding amount for the Sites Project by $25 million, correcting a shortage from 2018 due to limited funding. The Commission also voted to adjust the Maximum Conditional Eligibility Determinations of all existing projects to account for 1.5 percent inflation.
