The Sites Reservoir Project recently made a big shift in the direction of the project to be more affordable, permittable, and buildable within the next decade. The audience will learn about the value engineering undertaken to make this transition and the unique structure of the Project involving 9 Sacramento Valley local governing agencies, 21 local water agency investors from across the State, the Bureau of Reclamation, and the State of California through its Prop 1 conditional award. The presentation will describe the evaluation of Project feasibility to support funding through the Prop 1 process.
