The CALFED Drinking Water Quality Program, funded by Proposition 13 and Proposition 50, provides funding for drinking water quality projects that meet the following objectives:

  • The primary objective of the program is to continuously improve source water quality so that municipal water suppliers can deliver safe, reliable and affordable drinking water that meets and, where feasible, is better than applicable drinking water standards.
  • The program has specific targets for bromide and total organic carbon but also addresses salinity, microbial pathogens, turbidity, nutrients, taste, odor, and other constituents that negatively impact municipal water uses.
  • Solicitation timing will be determined in consultation with the Drinking Water Subcommittee
