Water access and reliability was a top concern of businesses responding to a recent poll by private-sector advocacy organization BizFed Central Valley.

Water turned up at or near the top of polling results in three categories: areas of concern for ongoing business and growth across the region, public infrastructure in need of immediate attention and California policies.

In the first category, water access and reliability was the third-highest area of concern, with 61 percent of respondents deeming it critical. The highest priority was government regulation and compliance, with 65 percent of respondents listing it as a leading concern, followed by taxes and fees (65 percent).
