Aguiar-Curry Nets $15 Million for Lake Project

The Governor’s revised May budget includes continued funding and support for rehabilitating Clear Lake. Assemblymember Cecilia Aguiar-Curry secured $15 million to aid in the Middle Creek Restoration project, part of an effort to promote the natural habitats and health of Clear Lake. Aguiar-Curry made the announcement after successfully working with Secretary John Laird of the California Natural Resources Agency and the Department of Water Resources. The funds will help complete the first phase of the project, located at the north end of Clear Lake. The grant will be funded by bond proceeds from Propositions 84 and 1E.
