Pressure Mounts On WaterFix Agencies

As the clock winds down on Gov. Jerry Brown’s time in office, pressure appears to be mounting on state agencies to move the California WaterFix project forward. The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD) surprised many during a Bay-Delta Special Committee meeting on Feb. 27 when it was disclosed that the agency was examining the opportunity to finance the $11 billion cost of  building the first of two tunnels in accordance with the Department of Water Resource’s (DWR) revised construction plan.
