Water supply

It's time to repair and prepare our water infrastructure


By Daniel Curtin

From Capitol Weekly - Thursday, Jan. 5, 2012

Coalition response...The need to modernize California's water infrastructure is clearly explained by this author. The visionary leadership from years ago that resulted in the construction of the State Water Project is needed once again. We really never know what we'll get in terms of snowpack and runoff and there's always the potential for a series of dry years. That is why we need to be able to store water in wet years so it is available to use when it's dry...and this is shaping up to be one of those years. Taking 10-20% off the top of flood flows when available could make the difference when water is most needed.
