Brown mentioned that this year, they intend to continue, through state agencies, to allot critical funding to update outdated water systems, including ground and storm water projects, conveyance, storage, desalination, recycling and wastewater treatment.

Brown also reviewed key updates to the 2016 California Water Action Plan, currently being finalized, calling it a critical roadmap for the future. “Some plans sit on the shelf,” said Wade Crowfoot, Deputy Cabinet Secretary. “This is not that plan.”
