Area congressmen join together to provide federal support for proposed Sites Reservoir

From The Appeal Democrat – North State congressmen from both sides of the political aisle announced a plan Thursday to help provide federal support for the construction of the proposed Sites Reservoir and related water infrastructure in Colusa and Glenn counties. The Sites Reservoir Project Act, introduced by Congressmen Doug LaMalfa, R-Richvale, and John Garamendi, D-Fairfield, would direct the Bureau of Reclamation to complete a necessary feasibility study for the Sites project and, if deemed feasible, authorize additional funding and technical support. “Water storage projects, such as Sites Reservoir, are absolutely critical to securing the future of our state’s water supply,” LaMalfa said in a press release. “It’s important that we have the infrastructure to save more water during wet years so we can prepare for the dry ones California sees all too often.” (more)
