Protect Our Local Supply of Safe, Clean Water in Santa Clara County- Without Raising Taxes
For more than 20 years, Santa Clara County residents have benefited from the Safe, Clean Water Program through Valley Water. The program has provided local funding to build voter- approved projects that protect our local drinking water for future generations. Measure S allows Valley Water to continue to implement this program by creating a long-term strategy for safe, clean local drinking water.
MEASURE S WILL
- Protect our local drinking water supply
- Upgrade aging pipelines and dams to protect against earthquakes and climate change
- Reduce pollution, toxins and contaminants in waterways
- Provide natural flood protection
AND MEASURE S DOESN’T INCREASE TAXES: It simply renews existing local funding we’ve relied on for 20 years. It would extend Measure B, approved by 74% of county voters in 2012.
MEASURE S REQUIRES INDEPENDENT CITIZEN OVERSIGHT AND AUDITS TO ENSURE FUNDS ARE SPENT AS PROMISED All Measure S funds will be controlled locally, will go to our local water protection projects and cannot be taken away by the state.
SENIOR RESIDENTS CAN BE EXEMPTED FROM THE TAX
Join local residents, environmental groups, labor, business leaders, and elected officials in protecting our water supply for future generations.
