PROPOSITION 1 BACKGROUND
The Water Quality, Supply, and Infrastructure Improvement Act of 2014 (Proposition 1 or “Prop 1”) was approved by voters in November 2014 (California Water Code CWC Division 26.7). Funding from Prop 1 is intended to fund projects that provide more reliable water supplies, restore important species and habitat, and develop a more resilient and sustainably managed water system (water supply, water quality, flood protection, and environment) that can better withstand inevitable and unforeseen pressures in the coming decades.
Prop 1 Chapter 6, “Protecting Rivers, Lakes, Streams, Coastal Waters, and Watersheds,” allocates $30 million to the OPC for a competitive grant program for multibenefit ecosystem and watershed protection and restoration projects in accordance with statewide priorities, CWC §79730 and §79731(d). It is the intent of the OPC to fund projects that meet Prop 1 criteria and fulfill of the mission of the OPC to ensure that California maintains healthy, resilient, and productive ocean and coastal ecosystems for the benefit of current and future generations.
More information about Proposition 1 can be found at the California Natural Resources Agency’s Bond Accountability Website.
