The California Water Commission has awarded eight water storage projects, including the Phase 2 Los Vaqueros Reservoir Expansion Project, the Maximum Conditional Eligibility Amount and Early Funding Request.

Statement from Contra Costa Water District

Contra Costa Water District is very pleased that the California Water Commission has awarded the Maximum Conditional Eligibility Amount and Early Funding Request for the Prop. 1 application to expand Los Vaqueros Reservoir. We appreciate the ongoing hard work and dedication by the Commission and the agency staff. We look forward to continuing to work with the Commission and local agency partners through the next steps of the funding process. We remain confident that an expanded reservoir will be a positive step forward toward greater water reliability for the entire Bay Area region and supply wildlife refuges in the Central Valley.
