State Senator Ben Hueso was presented with the 2015 Legislator Leadership Award by The Association of California Water Agencies (ACWA) Wednesday, Dec. 2, at its Annual Fall Conference and Exhibition in Indian Wells.

The prestigious award is presented to a legislator who has helped advance the association's efforts on legislative and regulatory issues.

“I am humbled to be receiving such a prestigious award,” stated Senator Ben Hueso. “My goal is to utilize this platform to raise awareness and promote a more reliable and sustainable water system in California. Our families deserve no less and I will continue to push towards focused policy initiatives that can move us in that direction.”

Senator Hueso spearheaded legislation that would create a path for water systems to work toward compliance granted by the State Water Resources Board to achieve California’s chromium-6 standards. This bill is critical to ensure ratepayer funds are spent on needed treatment systems and not on potential enforcement actions and litigation.
