Resources Agency Secretary Recaps Administration Water Priorities

Wade Crowfoot
Wade Crowfoot, secretary of the California Natural Resources Agency, gives the CalChamber Board of Directors a quick overview of the Administration’s water priorities on May 9. To ensure water reliability and build water resiliency, he explains, the Administration is focused on infrastructure and water management. Priority projects are modernizing water conveyance through the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta and the Sites Reservoir, an offstream storage project in the Sacramento Valley. Streamlining the permitting process for the projects will enable the state to do a better job of capturing water from wet times, such as the last two winters, and distribute it when needed during dry periods, he says.
