Proposition 1 was passed by voters in November 2014 and provided $900 million for a Groundwater Sustainability Program (Assembly Bill 1471, Chapter 10). The State Water Board will administer $800 million to prevent and cleanup contamination of groundwater that serves (or has served) as a source of drinking water. The funds can be provided as grants or loans. A summary of the program is provided in aProposition 1 Groundwater Sustainability Fact Sheet.

State Water Board Staff performed four scoping meetings and developed Prop 1 Scoping Questions to solicit comments on the development of the Draft Proposition 1 Groundwater Sustainability Program guidelines. Comments submitted by the June 30, 2015 deadline will soon be up on the Groundwater Quality Funding Website.
