Learn About the California WaterFix
Securing Reliable Water Supplies for Future Generations
Modernizing and improving California’s water system is essential for the reliable delivery of water supplies to much of the state. About 30 percent of the water that flows out of taps in Southern California homes and businesses comes from Northern California watersheds and flows through the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. But the Delta’s declining ecosystem and 1,100 miles of levees are increasingly vulnerable to earthquakes, flooding, saltwater intrusion, climate change and further environmental degradation.
California WaterFix is the product of more than a decade of review, planning, and rigorous scientific and environmental analysis by water experts, engineers and conservationists, as well as unprecedented public comment. The proposed project will improve the security of our water system by fixing aging infrastructure and constructing new, state-of-the art facilities using innovative technologies and engineering practices.
