LONG BEACH, CA - On Thursday, January 9, the Long Beach Board of Water Commissioners authorized the Long Beach Water Department to implement one of the most significant water supply reliability improvement projects in recent memory. The Long Beach Conjunctive Use Project will allow the Water Department to capture excess water during wet years and store it in the giant Central Groundwater Basin for use in dry years, when demand for water is high. The project will strengthen the city’s water supply reliability and maintain rate affordability.
