The Plan to Fix our Aging Water Distribution System

The South Bay relies heavily on California’s main water distribution system, which brings water from the Sierra Nevada Mountains through a system of aging levees, canals and pipes to our region. But key portions of the system are outdated and crumbling, putting the security and reliability of our local water supplies at risk. Experts warn that the system could collapse in an earthquake, and is susceptible to salt water intrusion during major droughts or natural disasters, cutting off water supplies for over a year and costing our economy billions of dollars.

The plan to fix California’s water system, known as the California WaterFix, will address the severe vulnerabilities in our water infrastructure and secure our local water supplies. This plan is critical for the South Bay. Please learn more and join the broad coalition supporting water security.

Our Water is at Risk


Sierra Nevada 

Millions of South Bay area homes, farms, and businesses depend on a distribution system that brings water hundreds of miles from the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

Crumbling Levees & Infrastructure 

This water travels through a system of outdated dirt levees and aging infrastructure. The most vulnerable points are not built to withstand a major earthquake, despite serving heavily populated regions across the California.


South Bay Aqueducts 

Your water travels from this system through the South Bay Aqueducts all the way to the South Bay Area distribution center, which serves South Bay Area regions.


Your Home 

A full two-thirds of California homes and businesses are served water from this aging, outdated system. Our water doesn’t have to be at risk, learn more about the plan to secure South Bay’s water.
