Increasing Water Storage in California

Congressman Jim Costa is introducing legislation to dramatically increase California's ability to store water.
                Congressman Jim Costa is introducing legislation to dramatically increase California's ability to store water.
                His plan involves expanding existing water storage sites at San Luis, Shasta and Temperance Flat.
                A recently passed plan in the House doesn't allocate federal funds for storage.
                That's something Costa hopes to change.
                He said it's critical to not only provide aid for farmers and workers impacted now, but to look to long-term solutions.
                And he said the extent of this crisis, is helping to put bi-partisan bickering aside.
                Water storage plans have the support of republican representatives, as well.
                Congressman Costa, and Senators Feinstein and Boxer, accompanied President Obama on his trip to the Central Valley two weeks ago.
