Paso Robles Basin Water District Continues Positive Momentum

The positive momentum of the Paso Robles Basin Water District continues. The San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors approved a Legislative Platform Policy Statement for forming a water district to manage the Paso Robles Groundwater Basin. Supervisors Frank Mecham, Bruce Gibson and Adam Hill voted in favor.

The endorsement by the Board of Supervisors came shortly before a second victory at the Paso Robles City Council meeting, where members voted 4-0 to support PRAAGS and PRO Water Equity’s plan for a hybrid district. Councilmember Ed Steinbeck sat out of the City Council vote. PRAAGS and PRO Water Equity will now continue working with Assemblyman Katcho Achadjian, R-San Luis Obispo.  

Achadjian said he is likely to carry a special legislation bill for forming a water district before the legislature in Sacramento if it receives county support.If the state passes the special legislation, PRAAGS and PRO Water Equity will present a petition to LAFCO to place district formation to a vote.
