    AB 30 (Perea D)   Water quality.    
       
      Summary: Existing law authorizes the State Water Resources Control Board, until 2014, to assess a specified annual charge in connection with any financial assistance made pursuant to the revolving fund program in lieu of interest that otherwise would be charged and requires the proceeds generated from the imposition of that charge to be deposited in the State Water Pollution Control Revolving Fund Small Community Grant Fund, along with any interest earned upon the moneys in the grant fund. This bill would eliminate the requirement that the charge remain unchanged until 2014 and instead would authorize the board to assess the charge without change unless the board determines that application of the charge is not consistent with federal requirements regarding the fund, at which time the board would be required to replace the charge with an identical interest rate. This bill would eliminate the prohibition on the deposit of more than $50,000,000 collected by the charge into the grant fund .

     

    AB 115 (Perea D)   Safe Drinking Water State Revolving Fund.    
       
      Summary: Would authorize the State Department of Public Health to fund projects, by grant, loan, or a combination of the two, where multiple water systems apply for funding as a single applicant for the purpose of consolidating water systems or extending services to households relying on private wells, as specified. The bill would authorize funding of a project to benefit a disadvantaged community that is not the applying agency. By authorizing the use of a continuously appropriated fund for new purposes, this bill would make an appropriation. This bill contains other existing laws.

     

    AB 142 (Perea D)   Safe, Clean, and Reliable Drinking Water Supply Act of 2012.    
       
      Summary: Current law creates the Safe, Clean, and Reliable Drinking Water Supply Act of 2012, which, if approved by the voters, would authorize the issuance of bonds in the amount of $11,140,000,000 pursuant to the State General Obligation Bond Law to finance a safe drinking water and water supply reliability program. Current law provides for the submission of the bond act to the voters at the November 4, 2014, statewide general election. This bill would state the intent of the Legislature to enact legislation to amend the Safe, Clean, and Reliable Drinking Water Supply Act of 2012.

     

    AB 1251 (Gorell R)   Water quality: stormwater.    
       
      Summary: Would require the Secretary for Environmental Protection to convene a stormwater task force to review, plan, and coordinate stormwater-related activity to maximize regulatory effectiveness in reducing water pollution. The bill would require the task force to meet on a quarterly basis. This bill contains other related provisions.

     

    AB 803 (Hueso D)   Water Recycling Act of 2013.    
       
      Summary: This bill, to be called the Water Recycling Act of 2013, would codify certain regulations to, among other things, (1) define various terms for the purpose of water recycling criteria, (2) require the use of certain quality recycled water for specified uses with prescribed prohibitions, and (3) modify prohibitions and requirements for dual-plumbed recycled water systems. This bill contains other related provisions and other existing laws.

     

    AB 1200 (Levine D)   Recycled water: landscaping.    
       
      Summary: Would require the Department of Water Resources to require 1,000,000 acre-feet of the water used for landscaping each year to be supplied by recycled water by 2020.
