MWDOC Directors Urge Support for Critical Water Project
Recognizing the importance of the California WaterFix to Southern California's water reliability, Directors of the Municipal Water District of Orange County (MWDOC) on December 5 unanimously approved a resolution of support for the proposed project.
The California WaterFix would stabilize the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta and ensure reliable water supplies from Northern California. About half of the water delivered to Orange County flows through the Delta into the State Water Project (SWP), which carries it south. Water through the SWP is also critical to filling Southern California's emergency storage.
"The California WaterFix is critical to ensuring we can continue to reliably serve our customers with water from north of the Delta," MWDOC President Wayne Osborne said. "It's not about getting more water, it's about reliability and protecting our investments. It is not a question of "if;" without decisive action, the Delta will fail."
