AB 1577: California Safe Drinking Water Act
In recent years, Sativa has faced numerous challenges in providing service, which include discolored water, corroded pipes, poorly maintained infrastructure, aging wells, and insufficient water pressure. It is estimated that at least $10mm in infrastructure improvements would need to be performed; however it has been determined that Sativa does not have the financial capacity or the means to obtain the resources necessary.
The severity of the issue has led to an outcry from the public an urgent need for action from government officials. As a result, I have introduced AB 1577 which seeks to improve the water quality in the Sativa Water District.
