  • Fact Sheets

California is in a race against climate change. As the wets get wetter and dries get drier, our water systems must be prepared to ensure California can continue to thrive. Building water infrastructure for the 21st century requires regulatory frameworks to move quickly to keep up. SB 23 identifies opportunities to improve and streamline the regulatory permitting process, while preserving established environmental protections, so these critical infrastructure projects are built at the pace and scale needed to prepare for climate change. The Fact Sheet includes information on how SB 23 would streamline the regulatory permitting process of water supply and flood risk reduction projects.
