Representative Grace F. Napolitano expressed her congratulations on the passage of H.R. 5303, the Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) of 2016, by the U.S. House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. Said Representative Napolitano:

“I am proud of the work we have done with San Gabriel Valley and state water agencies to include provisions in this bill that improve drought resilience, address regional storm water challenges, and create environmental and recreational opportunities for our constituents.”

Issues of water quality, supply and maintenance are of paramount importance to the San Gabriel Valley, particularly as this drought continues to affect our region (and the entire west and southwest United States). The San Gabriel Valley Civic Alliance continues to address these concerns through collaborative efforts with local, state and federal agencies to make certain that this region continues to be one of the most dynamic and prosperous in the nation.
