The old adage goes that “in California whiskey is for drinking and water is for fighting.”

Uniting Southern and Northern California in a collaborative water supply reliability vision, the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD), Santa Clara Valley Water District (SCVWD) and Zone 7 Water Agency today announced their partnership and formation of the Delta Conveyance Design and Construction Joint Powers Authority (DCA) — the public agency that will be charged with the design and construction of California WaterFix.

On a parallel path, the California Department of Water Resources (DWR) has now created the Delta Conveyance Office (DCO), which will oversee the work of the DCA. More information is available here.

This is an encouraging sign that some of the fighting has waned… a tiny bit.
