Meeting the region’s transportation needs by reducing traffic and increasing the efficiency of goods movement is a top priority for Congressman Dreier. He is committed to improving road safety, reducing congestion and improving air quality. With over 40 percent of the products coming into the U.S. and being exported from companies across the country to the rest of the world moving through the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, Congressman Dreier has been a leader in championing the infrastructure needed to keep the goods moving through the southland while reducing congestion and improving vehicle and pedestrian safety.

Congressman Dreier has helped our local communities partner with state and federal agencies to improve busy interchanges, eliminate traffic bottlenecks at freight rail crossings, convert buses to clean-burning fuel buses, construct transit-oriented development for light rail stations and repair damage from natural disasters.

The Congressman is also committed to the success of the Gold Line Foothill Extension and has long supported bringing a viable light rail transit alternative to the Foothills to give commuters a choice to get out of their cars and commute to work, school or to recreational activities. Right now the Gold Line ends at the Sierra Madre Villa station in Pasadena. Congressman Dreier is determined to see the Foothill Extension completed through the cities of Arcadia, Monrovia, Duarte, Irwindale, Azusa, Glendora, San Dimas, La Verne, Pomona, Claremont and Montclair.

Southern California’s dependence upon water resources from the northern part of the state as well as from the Colorado River have caused many in the Foothills to look at innovative ways to better manage our groundwater resources, as well as storm water runoff and water storage opportunities. Congressman Dreier has championed water management in the region. First and foremost is groundwater safety. That is why he authored the law to create the San Gabriel Basin Restoration Fund, which initially authorized $85 million in federal funding to clean-up perchlorate and other contaminants in our groundwater. The Fund is administered by the San Gabriel Basin Water Quality Authority which along with the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation designs, constructs and operates water projects to treat our groundwater supplies in the San Gabriel and Central Basins. Congressman Dreier recently authored the law that provides an additional $50 million in federal funds for the Water Quality Authority to continue its ongoing work.

The San Gabriel Groundwater Basin covers more than 160 square miles in Los Angeles County and is the primary source of drinking water for over 1.2 million people. Natural groundwater flows from the San Gabriel Basin permit the contamination to spread into the Central Groundwater Basin, a vast 277 square-mile underground aquifer that provides drinking water to over half of Los Angeles County.

In addition to water clean up, Congressman Dreier has been a strong supporter of innovative, cutting edge water management including water recycling. He authored the law that provides the Inland Empire Utilities Agency (IEUA) with $30 million in federal funds to help with constructing two water recycling projects that will produce nearly 100,000 acre-feet of new water annually to the area’s water supply. Recycled water produced by this project will allow fresh water to be conserved for drinking use, reducing our dependence on expensive imported water and using high-quality recycled water for landscaping, irrigation and other creative uses.

IEUA’s 242 square mile service area is located in the southwest corner of San Bernardino County and provides regional wastewater service and imported water deliveries to the cities of Montclair, Upland, Rancho Cucamonga, Chino, Chino Hills, Fontana and Ontario.

Southern Californians understand all too well the need to practice smart conservation due to regular drought conditions. However, natural drought conditions have been exacerbated by regulatory burdens that prevent effective water management throughout the state, as well as by court rulings that severely reduced the amount of water available from the Bay-Delta area in northern California. For that reason, Congressman Dreier is acutely focused on maximizing Southern California’s water resources with effective water reuse, reclamation and reliability while recognizing that our state’s water supply must remain available to the agricultural industry and to residents in drought emergencies by allowing water to be released from the Delta region.
