Metropolitan helps California prepare for climate change

Agency joins California Resilience Challenge, statewide adaptation initiative

A new initiative to help California confront the challenges of climate change received a big boost today from the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California.  Metropolitan’s Board of Directors voted unanimously to become a leader and board member of the California Resilience Challenge, a statewide effort to build local resilience to the droughts, floods, wildfires and sea-level rise that climate change will bring to California. As part of its commitment, Metropolitan will contribute $200,000 to the initiative, which will use the funding to provide grants to community-level climate change adaptation projects.
