The Department of Water Resources constructs, operates, and maintains several large-scale infrastructure projects as part of its mission to sustainably manage the water resources of California. These include the State Water Project, which safely delivers water to 28 million Californians, habitat restoration along the Delta, and flood management facilities that help protect residents. 

Assembly Bill 2543 (Chapter 918, Statutes of 2018) requires that state departments report on infrastructure projects with a cost estimate of more than $100 million that have either a delay of 12 months or cost increases of 10%.

 

While DWR has no projects subject to these requirements at this time, to ensure transparency, the Department has compiled the below list of ongoing projects with an anticipated budget of $100 million or more. These numbers were last updated in March of 2019. Should the timeline or cost of these projects change, they will be updated below.

 

DWR is also involved in some projects that share costs with federal or local governments. While these projects may have cost estimates of more than $100 million, DWR is not the project manager and does manage the project costs or timelines, and therefore has not included such projects here.
