    General Support/Program
California’s current drought is focusing public and decision makers’ attention to California’s precarious water supplies, especially groundwater supplies. This grant to the Resources Legacy Fund would support the work of its California Water Foundation in its efforts to reform the way groundwater is managed in the state. Currently, there is no regulation of groundwater pumping in California, leading to major aquifers, especially in the Central Valley, being depleted. The Foundation will work for groundwater reform by educating policymakers and the public, devising policy alternatives to the current system, and seeking new sources of groundwater management funding.
