The Water Supply and Water Quality Act of 2018 will appear as Proposition 3 on California’s November 6 ballot. Proposition numbers were recently assigned by California Secretary of State Alex Padilla. If passed, Proposition 3 would be the third water bond adopted by California voters in the last four years.
Proposition 3 would make available $8.9 billion in general obligation bonds to fund projects for water supply and quality, watershed restoration, fish and wildlife protection, sustainable groundwater management and repair of existing dams and canals. Proposition 3 funds would augment $1.6 billion for water-related projects already approved by voters on June 5 with the passage of Proposition 68.

“We are now on the doorstep of awarding funding from Proposition 1 to water storage projects across California,” Commission Chair Armando Quintero said. “We eagerly look forward to next month when we can make preliminary awards to these diverse projects that collectively will add 4.3 million acre-feet of water storage capacity to California.”
