California Water: Recipes for Success

March 2nd, Davis

Please join UC Water and California Institute for Water Resources for a workshop focused on what we are doing well in California water.

This one-day event will bring together examples of successful water management from a diversity of locations, scales, and water sectors in California. The morning will involve brief presentations and Q&A sessions for representative case studies. In the afternoon, we will hear perspectives from journalists and will facilitate small group discussion to reflect on lessons learned, identify enabling factors, and consider barriers to scaling. Workshop outcomes will be a white paper and related opinion pieces that synthesize our collective knowledge of successful water management activities in California. Our broader objective is to build a more accurate and compelling narrative for California water.

Public Workshops for the Delta Plan Amendment for Conveyance, Storage and Operations

March 3 (Tracy), March 6 (Diamond Bar), March 9 (Sacramento)

The Delta Stewardship Council’s Delta Plan is an enforceable long-term management plan for a sustainable Delta that furthers the State’s coequal goals of improved water supply reliability and a protected and enhanced Delta ecosystem.

These workshops are intended to gather comments on a draft amendment to better improve the way water moves across the Delta (conveyance), improve the amount of water stored above and below ground (storage); and improve the way the system is operated to maximize water supply and environmental benefit (operations).

The workshops will include a status report on the draft amendment, break-out sessions to address specific suggestions and concerns, and the anticipated adoption schedule.

PPIC Event: Water stress and a changing San Joaquin Valley

March 7, Clovis

The latest drought has put a spotlight on the challenges of managing water scarcity in the San Joaquin Valley. The PPIC Water Policy Center and the California Water Institute at Fresno State will hold a free, half-day public event featuring panels of local leaders and experts to discuss key water issues facing the region. We’ll review the findings from a new PPIC report that highlights options for addressing challenges facing farms, communities, and ecosystems, while taking into account new opportunities for management under the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act.

This research was supported with funding from the S. D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation, the TomKat Foundation, and the US Environmental Protection Agency.

Please register by February 28. There is no charge to attend, but space is limited. Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
