One year ago, Californians passed a $7.5 billion dollar water bond, also known as Proposition 1. When I voted yes on the bond, it was in hopes that the bond money allocated to storage would be put towards a new off-stream reservoir in Sites. Now that a full year has gone by, it doesn't feel like we are any closer to the dream of Sites Reservoir becoming reality.
It's for those reasons that I decided to start tracking the work toward building Sites with an on-going video series. This is part one of the series... Where are we? And how did we get here?
