In August 2015, ACWA released its policy principles on “Developing an Effective Water Market in California.”

ACWA believes a more efficient and effective water market can play a vital role in reducing impacts on the state’s economy, now and in the future. Developing such a market should be a top priority for the Brown Administration and state leaders – not only for immediate drought response but also as part of a comprehensive, long-term water management policy as outlined in the California Water Action Plan and as directed by Administration executive orders and drought proclamations.
