The Association of California Water Agencies (ACWA) appreciates the opportunity to provide comments on the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) proposed waiver concerning the application of BABAA to WIFIA-funded projects.1 ACWA’s more than 460 public water agency members supply over 90 percent of the water delivered in California for residential, agricultural, and business uses.
