Please contact Senator Padilla’s Office today regarding Senator Manchin’s draft water section in the infrastructure bill. While there are necessary items in the infrastructure bill, Senator Dianne Feinstein (who does not serve on the Energy and Water Committee) drafted this water section for Senator Manchin and loaded it up with big dam projects that will not help solve our drought challenges in California.
Please let Senator Padilla know that infrastructure that promotes water reuse, recycling, clean up, conservation, floodplain capture and flood control, groundwater banking, and technology are cost-effective ways to put more water in the system with California’s extended droughts — not empty dams that release methane into the air — and that will be dry most of the time.
Attached is a letter authored by NRDC that Restore the Delta signed onto discussing what good water infrastructure for California would look like. Here are the details of that plan.
