(New River Commission ready to start work on the New River)….All they need is money.
The New River Improvement Project Strategic Plan was approved by all involved. The Committee is ready to begin work on some of the Projects in the Plan, but they need funding. They have approached the Colorado River Basin Regional Water Quality Control Board and the State Water Resources Control Board seeking grant funding. Assemblyman Manuel Perez and State Senator Ben Hueso have signed a letter to the State Board asking for $400,000 from its Clean-up and Abatement account, and they are encouraging the Colorado River Board to approve a grant, as well. Work cannot start without funding.
