This program, authorized by Chapter 8 of the Safe Drinking Water, Clean Water, Watershed Protection, and Flood Protection Act (Proposition 13), provided feasibility study and construction grants to local public agencies and incorporated mutual water companies serving economically disadvantaged communities. Eligible projects were those that provided for the repair, replacement, restoration, or rehabilitation of existing water system distribution facilities and failing system components that threatened the health, safety, welfare, and economy of the area relying on the water distribution system.
Between 2001 and 2007 DWR awarded $56.3 million for 22 feasibility studies and 19 construction projects. Questions about this program and the projects funded should be sent to GRanTSadmin@water.ca.gov.
