An adequate supply of safe, reliable water is crucial to sustain our economy and quality of life.
Measure S upgrades outdated, seismically unsafe pipelines and dams that deliver water countywide.
Measure S funds needed improvements to protect our local water infrastructure and supply from the impact of climate change, drought, earthquakes, flooding and other natural disasters.
Measure S projects also reduce toxins, hazards, and contaminants in our rivers, lakes, and streams.
And Measure S doesn’t increase taxes: it simply renews existing local funding we’ve relied on for 20 years. 74% of voters approved the last renewal in 2012.
Measure S continues work that’s already being done countywide, like creek restoration, shoreline protection, environmental cleanup and habitat restoration. These projects have been essential to protecting our communities from extended drought, increased pollution and climate change.
We simply can’t afford to lose this important funding and put our local water supply at risk.
