The California Department of Water Resources has announced nearly $153 million  in grants to regional water projects around the state.

The Department says 138 projects will share the money, and many of them will provide drought relief through expanded conservation and water recycling.

The money comes from a bond measure approved by voters in 2006. One of the projects includes a pipeline to provide recycled water to customers in the San Francisco Bay Area.
