Money Will Flow to SD Following Passage of Prop. 84

Audio

Aired 4/19/09

Millions of dollars will flow to San Diego County after this week’s passage of Proposition 84 by voters. The measure allows the state to borrow more than $5 billion to fund a variety of water quality and conservation projects. KPBS Reporter Ed Joyce has details.

The multi-billion-dollar bond measure includes $91 million for San Diego County. San Diego County Water Authority spokesman Bill Jacoby says local officials will determine how to spend that money.

Jacoby: Watershed organizations, water agencies and others are working together to identify the best investments for that funding. And that process has already been in place for some time. And now that the funding is available it will be plugged in to help make those investments.

Jacoby says the Prop. 84 money will come to the region over several years. Money is also set aside to restore the county’s watersheds. The measure also allocates $27 million for the protection of San Diego Bay. Ed Joyce, KPBS News.
