BOMA California has endorsed Proposition 1 (Water Bond) on California’s November general election ballot. 

Proposition 1, a $7.5 billion water bond with significant funding for needed water storage projects, is the result of a historic bipartisan agreement.

California is in severe drought and we have not had any significant investment in our state’s water infrastructure in many years.  Our farms are facing water shortages, wells are empty, and the water we drink is running out.

We need the Prop 1 Water Bond to build more storage capacity, keep California water clean, and keep it flowing to all parts of the state.

Rex Hime, President and CEO, CBPA, states, “the storage projects in Proposition 1 will help California capture and store water in wet years so we can use that water during dry years.

California is in a severe, multi-year drought and has an aging water infrastructure.  Proposition 1 creates a comprehensive state water plan that will improve water supply for farms and businesses during severe drought, protecting both the economy and the environment.

Proposition 1 invests in new water storage by increasing the amount of water that can be stored during wet years. The plan includes $2.7 billion for water storage projects. Prop 1 also provides safe drinking water for all communities, ensures that our farms and businesses get the water they need during dry years, invests in water conservation, recycling and improved local water supplies, increases flood protection, funds groundwater cleanup, and provides significant funding to clean-up polluted rivers and streams.

BOMA California recommends a yes vote on both Proposition 1.
