A coalition of environmental organizations and the Grassland Water District submitted a joint letter to the California Natural Resources Agency last week to recommend inclusion of the Los Vaqueros Reservoir Expansion Project in the Governor’s Water Resilience Portfolio currently in development. The letter is addressed to Nancy Vogel, Director of the Governor’s Water Portfolio Program, who was selected by the Governor following the April 29, 2019 issuance of Executive Order N-10-19 that calls for the development of a portfolio. The state has invited all stakeholders and members of the public to help shape California water future and have been encouraged to submit recommendations by mid-September. More information on the Water Resilience Portfolio Initiative is available on the state’s website at waterresilience.ca.gov. The state currently anticipates that the Water Resilience Portfolio will be finalized by the end of 2019.
