GRAC Endorses Propositions 12 and 13

Feb. 27, 2000
A resolution supporting Propositions 12 and 13 was adopted by the board of directors of the Groundwater Resources Association of California (GRAC). "We will be facing water shortages in the coming decades," said GRA President Timothy K. Parker. "Propositions 12 and 13 will work together to help provide Californians with a more comprehensive program of water management and protection." Propositions 12 and 13, both appearing on the March 7th ballot, will provide necessary programs for solutions for groundwater, surface water, wildlife and fish habitat challenges. More specifically, Proposition 12 creates provisions to protect California's lands around lakes, rivers, streams and the coast as well as fund tree planting, urban conservation corps and open space protection in fast-growing counties. Proposition 13 funds pollution control programs that will reduce water resource contamination and increase the safety of drinking water. It also will fund infrastructure improvements and deteriorating water pipes and sewer systems, groundwater storage and watershed management to increase the reliability of California’s water supply.(Source: Groundwater Resources Association of California)
