However, the BAWSCA cannot support the plan adopted.
As part of its action last December, the National Water Management Board expressed its support for the ongoing negotiations on negotiations with voluntary counts and expressed its willingness to consider an alternative. However, the success of these negotiations remains uncertain for the time being. Therefore, BAWSCA must take the necessary legal steps to protect the interests of water consumers. BAWSCA joins the city and county of San Francisco, the Santa Clara Valley Water District and other water suppliers with a long list of complaints regarding the San Francisco Bay-Sacramento San Joaquin Delta Estuary plan recently passed by the State Water Board. The plan includes the Tuolumne River, which is the source of 85 percent of the water for the San Francisco Regional (Hetch Hetchy) Water System, which in turn provides two-thirds of the water used by BAWSCA agencies. “This legislation provides for emergency assistance as a down payment – but this is only the first step in addressing the clean drinking water crisis in our state,” Said Governor Newsom. “The fact that more than a million Californians cannot rely on drinking water for drinking or bathing is a moral disgrace. Our state must find a long-term solution to this crisis, and I look forward to working with the legislature in the coming months to do so. BAWSCA recognizes the need for a healthy environment in the Bay Delta and will continue to support efforts to negotiate a voluntary settlement agreement as a preferred alternative to achieving its objectives and providing urgent water to all water users it represents.
