Measure W – Safe, Clean Water Program
Measure W was approved by Los Angeles County voters on November 6, 2018. This multi-benefit measure provides cities, including the City of Santa Clarita, watershed areas, and Los Angeles County with funds to capture, treat, and recycle stormwater. Funding is provided through a parcel tax of 2.5 cents per square foot of impermeable land area (buildings, concrete, etc).
Stormwater, rainwater that flows over the ground and directly into the Santa Clara River, becomes polluted from natural and chemical materials, litter, and pet waste. Through Measure W funding, the City of Santa Clarita will invest in infrastructure projects and programs which comply with federal and state laws regulating water quality and reduce the amount of polluted stormwater flowing into the Santa Clara River, which recharges the groundwater that is approximately half our drinking water supply.
Infrastructure projects and programs will have nature-based solutions, water quality, water supply, and community investment benefits. Measure W funding will increase drought preparedness, improve water quality and public health, promote green jobs, and ensure investment in enhanced quality of life for the City of Santa Clarita’s residents and businesses.
