California to Consider 12 New Water Storage Facilities

A total of $2.7 billion will be awarded to a potential list of 12 water storage projects, thanks to funding from California’s Proposition 1, approved by voters in 2014.

Paul Rogers reports that the state of California recently unveiled “12 huge new water projects from massive new dams in the north to expanded groundwater banks in the south — that will compete for $2.7 billion in state bond funding for new water storage projects.”

“The money comes from Proposition 1, a $7.5 billion water bond overwhelmingly passed by voters in November 2014 during the depths of the state’s historic 2011-2016 drought,” explains Rogers.
