Senator Dahle Presents SB 836 in Committee

SB 836 would reduce water waste and contamination through earthen ditches over an easement by allowing them to be modified with an impervious material. In many cases across California, water loss to agriculture and residential property is a result of a poor delivery system. Piping can help to solve these issues for the consumer and can often reduce water waste by up to 50%. This is a common sense measure to allow the possessors of water rights to improve accessibility and easily resolve easement issues between landowners.
