Supervisors endorse Measure I

By
From page A8 | February 07, 2013 |

On Jan. 29, the Yolo County Board of Supervisors adopted a resolution of support for Measure I in order to advance the Davis-Woodland water supply project and urge the voters of the Davis community to vote yes on Measure I. Our resolution was passed by a vote of 3-2, with Supervisors Mike McGowan, Jim Provenza and me in support. The two dissenting supervisors expressed their personal support for Measure I but voted against passing a county resolution.

The Board of Supervisors supports Measure I because it assures reliable and sustainable safe drinking water for over 120,000 residents of the Woodland and Davis communities, constituting more than 60 percent of Yolo County’s 200,000 residents.

The project is consistent with the countywide Integrated Water Resource Management Plan. Currently, the cities of Woodland and Davis rely on groundwater for their water supply. These aquifers are depleting and degrading and the facilities require ongoing maintenance and replacement at substantial cost. Continued sole reliance on groundwater is not sustainable. This project converts both cities to conjunctive use of surface water and groundwater and will protect public health and the environment far into the future.

The city of Davis has been working on water quality and supply issues for many years with the guidance of renowned water experts. Most recently, in 2011, the City Council convened a citizens advisory committee, the Water Advisory Committee. After lengthy analysis of all key decisions and significant reductions to project costs, the WAC has recommended this project be advanced.

For these reasons the Yolo County Board of Supervisors supports and encourages Davis voters to vote yes on Measure I.

Don Saylor
2nd District supervisor, Davis
