Safe and Affordable Drinking Water fund (SB 200)
SB 200 establishes a stable ongoing fund to help communities access safe drinking water
In his first week in office, Governor Newsom proposed creating a permanent fund source for safe and clean drinking water projects. More than 1 million Californians lack access to clean drinking water at home, work or school, which negatively impacts their everyday life.
In June, Governor Newsom signed the 2019-20 state budget, which provides $130 million to begin implementation of a Safe and Affordable Drinking Water Program. SB 200 makes that money available for safe drinking water projects. SB 200 also requires the State Water Resources Control Board to develop a fund expenditure plan to identify failing water systems, as well as solutions to provide safe and affordable drinking water.
Darrin Polhemus, PE, Deputy Director, Division of Drinking Water, with the State Water Resources Control Board will give us an update on the fund and creation of the expenditure plan.
