Victory Alert: MWD Votes to Support the California WaterFix!

Joseph —

Today, April 10th, the Board of Directors of the Metropolitan Water District voted to support the California WaterFix. We agree with Governor Brown. The time is now to affordably and responsibly shore up our fragile Delta water system by building tunnels to SoCal.

By a good margin, 60.83% of the Board agreed and adopted option #2 which will authorize Metropolitan to finance its share of California WaterFix as a SWP contractor and to fully fund the unsubscribed share of the project up to 64.6% of total project costs. This approach would realize the full water supply reliability, water quality, and environmental benefits of California WaterFix as originally envisioned and currently approved

We thank you all our members that submitted letters of support and testified today:

Building Owners and Managers Association of Greater Los Angeles

Building Industry Association of Southern California – Los Angeles/Ventura

Cerritos Regional Chamber of Commerce

EL Monte/ South El Monte Chamber of Commerce

Engineering Contractors Association

Inland Empire Economic Partnership

Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce
