The Santa Clara Valley Water District Board of Directors will continue their examination of the state’s proposed California WaterFix project on Tuesday, Oct. 17 at 1 p.m.
The WaterFix project is the state’s proposed improvement to the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta infrastructure and 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.
Water agencies that receive water through the Delta from the state and federal water delivery systems are now deciding whether to support the state’s proposed project.
Over the last several years, the board has hosted several dozen workshops and presentations on the Bay Delta Conservation Plan and California WaterFix projects to hear updates and consider diverse perspectives. On the 17th, the board will consider whether to express conditional support for the project. Once other water agencies, including the water district, have determined whether they support the project, the state will assess whether any refinements are needed.
The board will take up the item at a special workshop at 1 p.m. on Oct. 17 in the boardroom at its headquarters at 5700 Almaden Expressway in San Jose.
