BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - On Monday morning, the Greater Bakersfield Chamber of Commerce took an in-depth look at the 7.5 billion dollar statewide water bond, that will be on November's ballot.
"This is a very serious movement, we've got a real water bond, we've got democrats and republicans that are more unified than I've ever seen," said Gov. Jerry Brown.
The bond measure calls for more reservoirs, cleaning up contaminated ground water, and promoting water-saving technologies.
During Monday morning's meeting at the DoubleTree Hotel, experts and local water officials will explore just where that funding will go, and whether it can help farmers and growers in the Central Valley and make California's environment a greener place.
