2014 Water Bond
Proposition 1 -- the Water Quality, Supply and Infrastructure Improvement Act of 2014 -- is a $7.545 billion general obligation bond measure set for the November 2014 ballot. If approved by voters, the measure would provide funding for needed investments as part of a statewide, comprehensive water plan for California,
Proposition 1 is the product of more than five years of discussions and negotiations among state lawmakers, stakeholders and others to craft a responsible bond measure to provide targeted funding for new surface and groundwater storage projects, regional water’s reliability, sustainable groudnwater management and cleanup, water recycling, water conservation and safe drinking water, particularly for disadvantaged communities.
Legislation placing the Proposition 1 on the ballot was approved on a near unanimous, bipartisan vote by the Legislature and signed by Gov. Jerry Brown on Aug. 13.
