Lobbying For California Water Supply and Procurement

In California, issues surrounding water supply and infrastructure are constantly changing.  Water Agencies and departments are under increasing pressure to find reliable and consistent supplies while struggling to bank, transfer, and store water.  Limited funding resources have also made it difficult to finance the necessary infrastructure to deliver water supplies when and where they need them.  Beyond that, many districts must meet the requirements of the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA).

Get a highly specialized set of key-personnel that understand water laws, supplies (long and short term), storage potentials, and transfer partners.

How Our California Water Lobbyists Get You the Win

Capitol Core’s lobbying team works in the State Capitols and with the United States Congress to seek Federal and State funding for infrastructure needs. Lastly, we know how important communicating with the districts’ constituents is to our clients - That is why we provide community outreach to disseminate information, hear constituent feedback, build influencer support, and clear misinformation. We do these things with one goal in mind, no loss in translation between advisors and a team of seamless, knowledgeable, and skilled personnel.
