Press Releases

Today, U.S. Congressman Scott Peters (CA-52) released the following statement after the passage of the Water Resources Development Act, which authorizes water-related studies and projects, that includes projects to support San Diego and California’s water infrastructure and policies to support ports, waterways, and environmental protection and restoration:

“Our infrastructure is crumbling. The American Society of Civil Engineers gives America’s infrastructure a D+. This bill will reinforce ports, waterways, and water infrastructure in California and across the country—an investment in resiliency and water security for our communities. It also directs the Army Corps of Engineers to expedite a study of the Tijuana River’s flood risk management and ecosystem restoration, a step forward in mitigating the Tijuana sewage spill. While this bill is not exactly what I would have written, it is good for California’s and San Diego’s long-term water security.”
