SHOW ME THE MONEY !! ForWater Use Efficiency

Proposition 50 Chapter 7• Section 79550(g)-$180 Million for expenditures and grantsfor urban and agricultural waterconservation, recycling, and other wateruse efficiency projects.

Issues• Funding: less than expected– CALFED Record of Decision that called for aninvestment of $1.5 billion to $2 billion from2000-2007.• Measuring “benefits”– Effectiveness study: what are real savings?Where does the water go?– Monitoring projects

Issues• Are we getting what we need?– Target grant efforts to “Gaps”– Update TB’s– Balancing opportunities vs. specific goals– Participation• Education and Outreach• Proactive Project Development• Project environmental consequences– Careful/detailed application review

CALFED WUE Incentive-BasedProgram• Investments will be made in the most cost effective WUEmeasures first.• Requirements will be made for performance andaccountability• CALFED agency pays towards primarily capitalization, localpays for O&M• Cost effective projects must be implemented at the locallevel (AB 3616 and Urban MOU compliance)• CALFED agency pays towards projects that are not locallycost effective, but are cost effective from statewideperspective• Cost share must be according to local and statewidebenefits• Agency supports disadvantaged communities actions

Proposition 50 Chapter 7• Section 79550(g)- $180 Million forexpenditures and grants for urban andagricultural water conservation other wateruse efficiency projects ($120 M) andrecycling ($60 M).• Section 75552. Projects shall beconsistent with the CALFED ProgrammaticROD.

Statistics- applications• Applications accepted: 168– Agriculture: 62– Urban: 106• Recommended for funding: 72– Agriculture: 27– Urban: 45

Prop 50 Grant Fund Requirementswere:• Project must result in Bay-Delta direct orindirect benefit• Project must be cost effective from Statewideperspective.• Projects with multiple benefits wereencouraged.• Cost share was based on the balance of theBay-Delta and local benefits• The greater the value of Bay-Delta benefits, the greaterState share

Bay-Delta System Direct or IndirectBenefits• Direct benefits are project outcomes that contribute toa CALFED Water Use Efficiency objective within theBay-Delta system.– contributes toward a stated Quantifiable Objective for in-streamflow and timing.• Indirect benefits are project outcomes that help toreduce dependency on the Bay-Delta related systemor improve a region’s water supply reliability.– an agency can delay the need for additional deliveries from theBay-Delta system.
