Governor Newsom Releases Final Water Resilience Portfolio

Sacramento, CA...Governor Gavin Newsom released a final version of the Water Resilience Portfolio, the Administration’s blueprint for equipping California to cope with more extreme droughts and floods, rising temperatures, declining fish populations, over-reliance on groundwater and other challenges.  The portfolio outlines 142 state actions to help build a climate-resilient water system in the face of climate change. The actions tie directly to Administration efforts to carry out recent laws regarding safe and affordable drinking water, groundwater sustainability and water-use efficiency. They also elevate priorities to secure voluntary agreements in key watersheds to improve flows and conditions for fish, address air quality and habitat challenges around the Salton Sea and protect the long-term functionality of the State Water Project and other conveyance infrastructure.





“Water is the lifeblood of our state, sustaining communities, wildlife and our economy,” said Governor Newsom. “For more than a year, my Administration has worked to assemble a blueprint to secure this vital and limited resource into the future in a way that builds climate resilience for all communities and sustains native fish and the habitat they need to thrive.”

The California Natural Resources Agency, California Environmental Protection Agency, and California Department of Food and Agriculture solicited extensive public input to prepare the portfolio in response to an April 2019 Executive Order (N-10-19).

“The state’s playbook for managing water in coming decades must be broad and comprehensive,” said Secretary for Natural Resources Wade Crowfoot. “The portfolio identifies how the state can help regions maintain and diversify water supplies, protect and enhance natural systems and prepare for a future that looks very different from our recent past.”

The agencies released a draft version of the portfolio for public feedback in January 2020. Input from more than 200 separate individuals and organizations helped shape revisions, including the addition of 14 new actions. The revisions give greater emphasis to tribal interests and leadership, upper watershed health and cross-border water issues.

“The Water Resilience Portfolio is a roadmap that will help us plan and build for a climate uncertain future. This blueprint establishes regional priorities that align challenges with opportunities for water-focused innovations like conservation, replenishing aquifers and direct potable reuse,” said Secretary for Environmental Protection Jared Blumenfeld. “By implementing this portfolio of actions together, we can meet the existential threat posed by climate change with a strategic sense of obligation and vision.”

The portfolio also recognizes the role of healthy soils in building resilience, including efforts that promote using working lands to sequester carbon, store water and prevent pollution.

“Evaluating our water management system for improved resilience is an essential first step in our quest for long-range sustainability and reliability,” said Secretary for Agriculture Karen Ross. “I look forward to collaborating with our state partners and agriculture stakeholders on this essential issue.”

Given the recent drastic downturn in the state’s budget situation, the final version acknowledges that the pace of progress on the actions in the portfolio will depend upon the resources available. The portfolio is a comprehensive, aspirational document, but there are several priorities the state will focus on.

These priorities include:
  1. Implementing the Safe and Affordable Drinking Water Act of 2019
  2. Supporting local communities to successfully implement the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act of 2014
  3. Achieving voluntary agreements to increase flows and improve conditions for native fish in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta and its watersheds
  4. Modernizing the Delta water conveyance system to protect long-term functionality of the State Water Project
  5. Updating regulations to expand water recycling
  6. Accelerating permitting of new smart water storage
  7. Expanding seasonal floodplains for fish and flood benefits
  8. Improving conditions at the Salton Sea
  9. Removing dams from the Klamath River
  10. Better leveraging of information and data to improve water management
State agencies intend to track and share progress on portfolio implementation with an annual report and stakeholder gathering.

    Everything good is dead in Calif thanks to democrats running the state.
    You would think these brain dead dems would think that the last reservoir built in Calif the population was almost 20,000,000 less then today's 39,000,000 plus. But these idiots, who imbeciles keep voting for build, build, build without thinking about our most important natural resource. Dems thinks it's people, so they can tax them, bleed them for more money.

      We need more dams. We need to secure water reserves so that our population can double in the next 20 years.

        That's why it says they're tearing out the damns on the Klamath River.
        Maybe they can build a new pipeline like the new four story pipeline that's going to be taking more water from the delta and ship it south? Do that for the Klamath, LA is going to need it Galvin. What I don't seem to understand folks, how does stealing more water from the Delta help the decking fish runs?
        That's the things with politicians, they talk and talk and talk trying to BS you to death, and do the opposite of what they were babbling about.
        Last thing, did you notice Galvin put the majority of things to do on everyone's lap, while he's collecting future favors for that FOUR STORY pipeline. (Wanna bet he's gonna run for the WH in the near future?)

            We need more reservoirs. Don't ever vote for a Democrate. They want to control every aspect of your life. More reservoirs; problem solved.

              Water cisterns under parking lots in the cities but not more dams. The ones we have now are all aging and a danger to everyone downstream.

                One of the really dumb things is switching from on site sewer to centralized sewer systems!! Instead of local ground water recharge you pump all your grey and black water miles away and evaporate it.

                No ground water recharge

                No moisture for trees

                Billions and Billions of gallons a year just evaporated

                  The counties and cities on the Pacific shoreline can always start up a desalinization process with the ocean water. There is such a thing you know?
