Without a reliable water system, we put our economy at risk and jeopardize tens of thousands of jobs.
Supports existing jobs and creates new ones
Reliable water supplies keep our vibrant economy moving in every sector, from technology in the Silicon Valley, to manufacturing in Southern California, to farms and ranches throughout the Central Valley. Reliable water is the foundation of job creation, capital investment, and economic growth. Without reliable water supplies, businesses cannot operate and grow, homes cannot be built, and our schools cannot run.
Return on Investment
We can maintain and grow jobs by investing in water infrastructure. Studies show that for every $1 billion spent on water infrastructure, 30,000 new jobs are created.
Californians get it. Recent polling shows that a large majority support investing in water infrastructure.
