ACWA Region 5 Members gathered in Livermore on Oct. 19 and 20 for our 2014 fall event, titled “Creative Approaches to Watershed Reliability in the Tri-Valley.” With water managers having to do more with less these days, Region 5 decided to host a program on outside-the-box approaches to water reliability to showcase how local districts are making the current water supplies work for them.

In just a few days, Californians will cast their votes on Proposition 1, the $7.545 billion water bond on the Nov. 4 ballot.
The product of more than five years of discussions and negotiations, Proposition 1 represents what could be a major turning point in California water. If approved by voters, the measure would jumpstart investments in the comprehensive, statewide water plan we need for our future. In short, it would advance an “all-of-the-above” strategy that includes everything from local resources development to water storage to safe drinking water.
