Filed under: Uncategorized — waltblog @ 8:23 am

SACRAMENTO – Assemblyman Dan Logue today announced the support of the Northern California Water Association (NCWA) the California Water Infrastructure Act of 2014 last week.
Logue’s legislation would create additional water storage facilities for statewide benefit as well as protecting water rights, supplies, and quality for Californians.
“As this important legislation works its way through the legislature, I am pleased to have the support of the Northern California Water Association. Our economy is reliant on an adequate and healthy water supply, and our constituents depend on clean, available water,” stated Logue.
“The NCWA joins a growing list of representatives of the North State who support this longterm solution to ensure proper allocation and usage of water throughout the state.”
“Over the past several decades, the state has not invested in surface water storage projects that provide stated water management benefits. During this time multiple water bond were passed that could have included surface water storage funding. But they did not… Additional surface water storage that provides statewide benefits, such as Sites reservoir, will increase the flexibility of the water systems in the state,” explained Todd Manley, Director of Governmental Relations at the NCWA.
