The Water Supply and Water Quality Act of 2018 is a citizen’s initiative water bond that will appear on the November 2018 statewide California ballot. On April 25, the California Secretary of State announced that sufficient signatures have been submitted to place the water bond on the ballot. The bond will invest $8.877 billion dollars in California water infrastructure, including key categories like: safe drinking water, Sustainable Groundwater Management (SGMA) implementation, watershed restoration, fish and wildlife habitat conservation, infrastructure repair, and many other important water management programs. The bill will benefit individual water users, the environment, and agriculture, and subsequently has received support across the board from conservation, agricultural, environmental justice, water and civic organizations. It is a balanced water bond measure, resulting in improved water supplies for every part of the state, and provides some of the much-needed investment in California’s sustainable water future.
