San Diego County Water Authority

 Water Authority Board
Votes to Support Water Bond
The Water Authority's Board of Directors today voted unanimously to support Proposition 1, a $7.5 billion state water bond measure on the Nov. 4 ballot. If passed by California voters, it would invest in new water supply development and large-scale water infrastructure projects important for the future of San Diego County and the rest of the state.


The water bond was the product of negotiations led by Gov. Jerry Brown, Assembly Speaker Toni Atkins, and Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg. The Water Authority worked for months to advocate for the San Diego region's policy priorities in Sacramento, and the Water Authority supported the final version of the bond passed by the Legislature. Every member of the San Diego County delegation voted for the bond measure, which Gov. Brown signed on Aug. 13.

Wait... Let Me Take a #Droughtselfie  


To promote water conservation, the Water Authority has delivered thousands of refrigerator magnets with indoor water-saving tips to college campuses across the region and invited students to promote water-smart living by posting "selfies" with the magnets.


Participating students will be entered to win free tacos generously donated by Rubio's and Jack in the Box. Other great giveaways have been donated by Oggi's Pizza & Brewing Co. in Mission Valley, SeaWorld, Slater's 50/50 and Woodstock's Pizza.


It's easy to participate: Follow the Water Authority on Twitter @sdcwa and post a photo with a drought magnet to your Twitter, Facebook or Instagram accounts using #DroughtSelfie. To be eligible for prizes, participants must tag @sdcwa using Twitter and Instagram or the San Diego County Water Authority using Facebook. Students are also encouraged to post tips about what they are doing to save water.


During September and October, the Water Authority will send coupons for free tacos to 50 randomly selected participants each week. Larger prizes will be randomly drawn throughout the campaign. More information is at sdcwa.org/drought-selfie.


To request a magnet with water-saving tips, send a tweet to the Water Authority @sdcwa or email sdcwa@sdcwa.org. For more information about the drought, go to WhenInDrought.org.
