What’s the California WaterFix?

About 30 percent of the water that flows out of taps in Southern California comes from Northern California via the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. State and federal agencies want to modernize the water system by building three new intake points in the northern Delta along with two tunnels to convey water to the existing aqueduct system in the southern Delta.
