Letter excerpt:

The Association of California Water Agencies (ACWA) writes to thank you for your leadership on the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and supports its prompt enactment. ACWA further urges Congress to include resources for additional water, forecasting, forestry and ecosystem restoration programs as it considers another package of investments through the reconciliation process. ACWA’s more than 455 public water agency members supply over 90 percent of the water delivered in California for residential, agricultural, and industrial uses. Nearly two-thirds of the West is currently experiencing extreme or exceptional drought conditions and more than 2.2 million acres have burned in 104 large fires in 12 Western states.
