Coalition response...Resolving California's water supply problems is a challenging experience and requires all interest groups to cooperatively work together. Unfortunately, the road to resolution oftentimes involves legal wrangling that consumes both time and money as conflicts are dragged through our court system. Some court cases may have merit but far too many fail the test of reasonableness.

California is known worldwide as a land of sunshine and plenty. Water has been the key ingredient that provides this lifestyle and a plentiful supply of food that is enjoyed by those around the world. If California is going to retain its position as a supplier of food and trading partner, then a reliable supply of water must be a part of our future. That reliability hinges on continuing the things we do best, such as efficiently managing our current water supply. It also includes an expanded water supply system that features new storage and an improved conveyance system. If California does not move forward toward these goals, then it will move backward and all Californians will suffer.
