Monthly Luncheon - September 25, 2014
Funding for Storm Water Systems -Impacts of Proposition 218
Does the drought got you down? We know it will rain again and are you prepared? Or maybe your agency could use extra money to build, replace or maintain your storm drain or clean water infrastructure. During this luncheon we will explore how storm water systems were funded and built, the impacts from proposition 13 and proposition 218, impacts to storm water from the Federal Clean Water Act; but most important, possible solutions as Cities and Counties try to treat storm waters , replace aging infrastructure and meet the demands of their local constituents. Come and listen how this just might be a possibility here in California.
