Seven months ago, California passed a deadline to have an agreement in place on how to divide and distribute California’s reduced allocation of Colorado River water. Without an agreement in place, the state has been denied a "soft landing," a gradual reduction in the supply of water from the Colorado. As negotiations press on, the governor’s office has put forth a proposal of infusing Prop 40 funds in order to reach an agreement. The contesting party to that deal is Metropolitan Water District, a state agency. Metro Investment Report is pleased to present this interview with Richard Katz, Senior Advisor to the Governor for Water and Energy, in which he comments on the governor’s position in the ongoing negotiations, and the future of Colorado River water access in California.
