Projects Battling For Proposition 1 Water Bond Funding

The California Water Commission got a look in December at all 11 projects vying for water storage bond money, including Sites Reservoir. Proponents of Sites, an off-stream reservoir proposed for a valley west of Maxwell, are seeking $1.7 billion from Proposition 1, a $7.5 billion bond measure approved by voters in November 2014. Proposition 1 included $2.7 billion for water storage projects, but the 11 proposals would cost $5.7 billion.
