·   Water Storage Investment Program: Scoping Survey Currently Underway

One of the first steps in developing the Commission's Water Storage Investment Program is an initial scoping survey to collect cursory information about potential water storage projects from project proponents that may request Proposition 1 funding. The Commission will use this information to inform the development of the regulations, guidelines, and implementation process.

Please note: Due to the large amount of feedback from interested participants, we have extended the deadline of the survey from its original deadline of March 11th.

If you have not yet participated and wish to, please follow the scoping survey link​.
