The Legislature wrapped up its work for 2013 in the early hours of Sept. 13, capping a legislative year that saw ACWA and its coalition partners play an effective role on legislation that could have significant impacts on its member agencies.
While ACWA spent significant time and energy opposing a move to transfer the state’s entire drinking water program to the State Water Resources Control Board (AB 145) and worked on many other bills, including California Environmental Quality Act reform, we also played a leadership role in advancing the dialog on the 2014 water bond.

August is ACWA’s inaugural Member Appreciation Month, and I’m jumping at this opportunity as president to formally thank ACWA members for your membership.
We have a long and proud history as an organization, with more than a century on the books as the leading voice for local water agencies in the state. But this voice – and indeed our various accomplishments over the years as a community – would not be possible without the solid commitment and support of ACWA’s membership.

On July 19, ACWA members gathered in Santa Rosa for our Region 1 hosted program, “Take it From the Tap: Promoting Drink Local Campaigns.” At the program, we heard presentations on drink local campaigns, hydration stations, getting the message into schools, and an update and next steps on the regional “Take it From the Tap” campaign.

For many Californians, the long hot days of summer are synonymous with air conditions and outdoor watering. While everyone knows it takes energy to run that air conditioner, few people realize it takes energy to deliver water to homes and businesses.
