"There's every overt danger signal our water infrastructure is inadequate," California Sen. Dianne Feinstein warned Tuesday in a speech designed to rally support for a $9.3 billion water bond referendum. Feinstein said the last major addition to the state's water system was in the 1960s, when the population was less than half its current level of 38 million. She has teamed with Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger in championing the bond measure, which has met with stiff resistance among Democrats in the state legislature.
