Subject: Support for Forest Health Investments, Inclusion of Drought Action, and other Climate Measures in the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022

Letter excerpt:

The Association of California Water Agencies (ACWA) writes to encourage you to include drought resilience funding and maintain bold forest health funding as the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 moves forward. These investments are critical for providing relief from the effects of drought, ensuring ecosystem health, protecting the quality and supply of water in fire-threatened watersheds, and the safety of people living near federal forests. 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.
