The Davis Chamber of Commerce supports a yes vote on Measure I in the mail-only election that concludes March 5.
“The Woodland/Davis Clean Water Agency surface water project will be a valuable asset to Davis with multiple long-term benefits to our community,” a news release from the Chamber said. “It will improve water quality by augmenting our deteriorating, environmentally unsound, and poor quality ground wells with river water.
“Measure I is a long-term investment in the economic and environmental sustainability of our community. The city of Davis needs a high-quality water supply, of sufficient capacity, to attract and retain the businesses that Davis needs in order to be financially sustainable. The benefits of this large community investment in long-term surface water infrastructure outweigh the costs of maintaining a deteriorating ground water system and are prudent planning for the future.”
