Water supply

$11 billion water bond should be repealed


By Adam Scow and Barbara Barrigan-Parrilla

From Sacramento Bee - Friday, Feb. 17, 2012

Coalition response...People who want to see the water bond go away are myopic in their views as they relate to water issues confronting all of California. These critics ignore provisions that would establish integrated regional water management plans that would lead to increased self-reliant water supplies. They also refuse to accept the efforts underway to secure a resolution to both the Delta's ecosystem and a reliable water supply for 25 million Californians. California's water supply has historically served all of its citizens and not just one group over another. As a result, our state has developed an economy and a standard of living that is unmatched. A recent Field Research poll revealed that 62% of respondents believe it is worth it to invest funds to ensure a reliable water supply for the future. Interests who claim the water bond should be defeated are out of step with almost two-thirds of California voters.
