Water Solutions in $11 Billion Water Bond for California SBX7 6 and SBX7 8

California has a new $40 billion water bill for water infrastructure

Find green business solutions
On November 5, 2009, the California Legislature passed SBX7 6 and SBX7 8, a water package that will have a significant impact as the State Water Project. Governor Schwarzenegger announced the bill at a press conference. "I'm so excited that finally my vision is one step closer to becoming a reality, which is to fix our water infrastructure. This is, without any doubt, the most comprehensive water infrastructure package that was passed here at 6:00 o'clock in the morning, the greatest package and most comprehensive in the history of California. And this is an $11 billion package that will be leveraged against an additional $30 billion. That is altogether a $40 billion project," Schwarzenegger explained.

"And this is something that is very badly needed for the state of California and this was part of our infrastructure proposal, of our Strategic Growth Plan in 2006 in my State of the State Address. But at that point the legislature only wanted to do part of it, which was transportation, education, affordable housing and fixing the levees. The two things that were left out at that point were the infrastructure of prisons and also the infrastructure, our water infrastructure. Well, the water infrastructure was the last piece of the puzzle that was missing.

"As you know, this has been a huge problem, that the infrastructure that was built five decades ago by Pat Brown was for 18 million people. We are, in the meantime, 38 million people and we are going to be eventually, in the next 15 years, 50 million people and this project will take that long in order to get it completed..."
