AB 1337 – Assembly Floor
Curtailing Water Usage During Shortages
AB 1337 would have given the State Water Resources Control Board clear authority to limit water diversions from all water rights holders when there is a shortage, both during drought and non-drought years. This would have helped prevent wastewater, encourage water recycling, and conserve and protect public trust resources by allowing the board to equitably control and divert water, effectively protecting communities based on need.
