The Safe, Clean, and Reliable Drinking Water Supply Act would allow California to borrow $11.1B (27% towards water storage, 20% towards sustainability, 15% towards ecosystem and watershed restoration, 11% towards water recycling and treatment facilities, 13% towards water management, 9% towards groundwater protection and cleanup, and 4% towards drought relief and safe drinking water). The bond would be funded by California taxpayers through the state's general fund. See recent Safe, Clean, and Reliable Drinking Water Supply Act news
