Two incumbent congressmen--both up for re-election this week--held a joint press conference in Santa Rosa Monday. But the topic was water, not politics.
The last big Federal water projects bill was passed in 2007. The new measure is smaller, and went through a more rigorous vetting process, but Congressman Mike Thompson says it still proved to be an effective vehicle for necessary local projects.
Among those local efforts, noted Santa Rosa City Council member Erin Carlstrom, was expansion of the city’s water recycling program.
