Summary

This bill requires that at least 10 percent of the total amount of funding from the Water Project Fund for water projects each year must directly benefit small water supply associations and acequia associations.

 

A potential benefit of this bill is that it may help in improving water quality at the level of small, local communities. A possible concern might be reduced available funding for larger, higher priority and higher impact water projects.
