Board to continue California WaterFix discussion

The Santa Clara Valley Water District Board of Directors will continue their discussion of the California WaterFix plan, the state’s proposed improvement to Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta intrastructure at its next board meeting, which begins at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 12. The plan is intended to reduce risks to water supplies from failing levees and rising seas while improving water flow in the south Delta to protect fish.

The water district board has had a number of updates in recent months on the issue. The board has not decided whether to actively participate in the plan, and is still gathering information and feedback from the public before making a decision.

On Sept. 12, the board will discuss the water supply analysis, cost and water allocation, and financing for the project. Included will be a look at how Santa Clara Valley’s participation would affect ratepayers in Santa Clara County. Click here  for the agenda item.

The board also has a discussion scheduled for Oct. 3, and expects to make a decision on participation on Tuesday, Oct. 10. These discussions are all open to the public, and the board invites all those interested in learning more to attend the meetings, hear the presentations and voice their questions or concerns.
