Goals of the Symposium are to improve flood risk management planning and increase warning time for large floods.
July 18, San Francisco
The recent drought was a stress test for Bay Area cities. It revealed good preparation by local water agencies but also tensions between the state and local utilities brought on by state-mandated conservation. Join a panel of regional leaders for a discussion about building cooperative solutions to improve drought resilience in the Bay Area. We’ll discuss the Bay Area’s role in regional water management and innovation, and in addressing ecosystem needs.
