CalWaterFix is the proposed project from the California Department of Water Resources and the United States Bureau of Reclamation to reroute water destined for delivery to Central and Southern California via the State Water Project and the Central Valley Project through 35 miles of tunnels under the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. A decision is expected by this summer.
If approved, the project would cost billions of dollars, primarily paid for by those who will receive the water, including a large share by the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California. What would it mean for Southern California if the project is approved? What would it mean if the project is not built? What will be the key areas of legal interest in the expected legal challenges? Our panel of experts from the Department of Water Resources, the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, and Environment Now will address the local pros and cons of this water project with statewide significance.
