Upon receipt of such notice, such public agency shall, at the time specified therein, pay to the State Treasurer the amount set forth in such notice. Such amount shall, upon order of the State Controller, be deposited in the State Treasury to the credit of the California Water Resources Development Bond Fund to be available for the purposes prescribed in Section 12937 of this code.
