Joint statement from chancellor and mayor on water access

Together we agree that a court ruling is the best route to settle the long-standing dispute the university and the city of Santa Cruz have regarding access to water service throughout the UC Santa Cruz campus. 

This decision to involve the court does not signal a break in our strong and productive relationship. Instead, it demonstrates a shared desire to resolve this disagreement, allowing the university and the city to plan for the future.
