“As a representative of the Central Valley, I am honored to be a passionate advocate for the Temperance Flat project and stand with the San Joaquin Valley Water Infrastructure Authority. I thank the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation for their partnership. This type of collaboration is exactly what needs to be done to ensure that the best proposal for Temperance Flat dam is presented,” Assemblymember Arambula said. The news conference will include federal, state, county and local elected officials, and agricultural, water, and business leaders.
