Introduced by Senator Stern

February 16, 2018

LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 1489, as amended, Stern. Oil and gas: inspection. California Drought, Water, Parks, Climate, Coastal Protection, and Outdoor Access For All Act of 2018: water recycling.
If approved by the voters at the June 5, 2018, statewide primary election as Proposition 68, the California Drought, Water, Parks, Climate, Coastal Protection, and Outdoor Access for All Act of 2018 would authorize the issuance of bonds in the amount of $4,100,000,000 for the purpose of financing a drought, water, parks, climate, coastal protection, and outdoor access program. The proposed bond act requires $100,000,000 to be available, upon appropriation by the Legislature, for purposes relating to water recycling and prohibits the money from being used to provide financial assistance to any water recycling project used to augment water supplies by discharging recycled water into a surface water reservoir that supplies water directly to a treatment facility for a water supply system that serves domestic uses.
This bill, operative only if Proposition 68 is approved by the voters at the June 5, 2018, statewide primary election, would add language to the provisions enacted by the proposition to eliminate this prohibition on using this $100,000,000 in bond funds for the purpose of water recycling for projects that augment surface water reservoirs that supply water directly to treatment facilities that serve domestic uses.
This bill would declare that it is to take effect immediately as an urgency statute.

Existing law requires owners or operators of oil and gas wells to keep a careful and accurate log, core record, and history of the drilling of each well. Existing law requires the log to be kept in the local office of the owner or operator, and, together with the tour reports of the owner or operator, provides that they are subject to inspection by the State Oil and Gas Supervisor, the district deputy, or the Director of Conservation.

This bill would make nonsubstantive changes to the provision related to inspection.
