We should be charging adjustable scale water rates based on income, usage, and cities/areas/non-essential business needs (like golf courses). Reward those who are using water saving methods with lower rates. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Sacramento, CA
No. Funds should be redirected from wasteful projects like high speed rail, allowing state workers to retire at 50, etc. 6 years ago from a Republican in Laguna Beach, CA
Yes, but what the money is spent on should be specifically mandated so the state can't spend it on high-speed rail instead. 6 years ago from a Republican in Sacramento, CA
I would support a scaled-back water bond (closer to the $6.5 billion legislative proposals) that focuses on necessary infrastructure improvements, water efficiency, and conservation. 6 years ago from a Green in Davis, CA
Only if the overhaul allows protection for the Delta region and higher water prices or taxes are paid by residents living in naturally desert areas which have large populations requiring water to be shipped in from other areas. 6 years ago from a Democrat in San Rafael, CA
We need to expand our resivoir capacity and improve water management, and if the water situation gets very extreme (drought) whe shoulde ALWAYS put humans befor fish, birds, frogs, etc. 6 years ago from a Libertarian in Sacramento, CA
Not if it means giving water away to socal. 6 years ago from a Democrat in San Francisco, CA
I don't think anyone can really answer to the state of our water system unless they work there. They have some of the highest paid employees I know of in the public sector. 6 years ago from a Republican in Vista, CA
80% of our water goes to Agriculture and should be examined here for excessive waste. 6 years ago from a Republican in Tustin, CA
No, invest in diversifying the water profile instead of going into debt for a dwindling source. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Mill Valley, CA
Let's consider saving the $11.1B first, then fix the water system. It doubles the effectiveness of the tax dollars. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Toluca Lake, CA
This should be handled by the Federal Government. 6 years ago from a Green in Berkeley, CA
No, It will destroy the Sacramento River delta. 6 years ago from a Green in Sacramento, CA
Yes but much like the federal govt there is no accountability in the CA legislature so when the money doesn't go where it is supposed to, and it won't, then the price will go up and we Californians will pay more, and more. 6 years ago from a Republican in Cotati, CA
No, eliminate all roadblocks that crop up that prevents up-grading and allow locals to upgrade the water system. 6 years ago from a Republican in Rohnert Park, CA
