Natural Resources (California)

League members take action on issues where we have studied the topic and have reached conclusions that are embodied in our positions. Our Action/Advocacy Committee meets monthly (see Calendar of Events). Recent activities have included advocacy for affordable housing proposals in several cities, support of extending the county healthcare plan to undocumented immigrants, and statements on the Concord Naval Weapons Station re-use plans. We have been advocating for an Independent Redistricting Commission in Martinez.

Notes from recent meetings can be found at the following links:

Recycled Water: A Reliable Supply in Unreliable Times
News

Now that the snowpack is not a reliable resource, as a state, we have to get serious about keeping water on the land and not having it go as quickly as possible out to the ocean. This means a total revamp of how we have managed water in California. Besides stormwater capture or building more dams, one of the ways to accomplish this is to recycle water: a proven concept. The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD) and the Los Angeles Sanitation District have teamed up and are planning to build a recycling water plant in Carson, CA.
