Cal WaterFix Doesn’t Promise More Water – New Water Supplies Needed To Meet Local Development Needs

Southern California is still healing from a historic drought. Yet most people take clean, affordable water for granted because it continues to spout freely from our shower heads and faucets, said Charley Wilson, President of the Southern California Water Committee, at a recent California WaterFix Summit. During a panel discussion at the Summit, water experts agreed that Governor Jerry Brown’s proposed California WaterFix tunnel project will help hedge against predicted losses of water from the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, but will not yield enough water supplies to meet new development demands.
