Water Bond Hearing Focuses on Central Coast Needs

Friday, December 20, 2013

(Seaside, CA) - At the request of Assemblymember Mark Stone (D-Monterey Bay) the Assembly Water, Parks and Wildlife Committee, chaired by Assemblymember Anthony Rendon (D-Lakewood), held a hearing in Seaside to discuss regional water issues, the looming statewide water crisis, and the state Assembly’s water bond proposal.  "The water needs of the Central Coast are different than much of the rest of California,” said Assemblymember Stone. “We are expected to be self-sufficient because we don’t receive water from other parts of the state.  That’s why it’s critical that the proposed water bond include resources that allow us to sustain our water supply, and protect our water quality for human consumption, fisheries, and sensitive habitats."
