Today, when it seems that every issue and publication is politicized,
Maven’s Notebook is refreshingly straightforward.
If you read Maven’s Notebook, you know you can count on getting the most comprehensive aggregation of California water news, reliably delivered to your email box around 9am, six days a week.
But Maven’s Notebook is much more than just a news aggregator …
Among the services Maven’s Notebook and associated websites provide:
Original reporting on regional, state and federal policy issues, including public meetings, workshops, agency announcements
Coverage of conferences and seminars not found elsewhere
Coverage of relevant scientific research underway in the Delta and beyond
The most comprehensive calendar of water-related events available on the internet
The Groundwater Exchange, a comprehensive basin-by-basin resource center dedicated to assisting Californians during implementation of the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act
The California Water Library, a free and comprehensive online education resource center
… and all of this is presented in an unbiased straightforward manner—with no sales pitch and without advocating for any particular solution. These resources are openly available and free of advertising to water managers, policy makers, agency folks, lawyers, consultants, NGOs, and other stakeholders who want to be better informed about our most precious resource.
But what you may not realize is that Maven’s Notebook is not funded by a large grant or endowment, or affiliated with any organization or institution; there are no other business activities other than publishing the website that support operations. My singular purpose is to serve my readers with the most comprehensive and up-to-the-minute California water news and information every day, and with over 13 years of experience, I understand the landscape like no other. Bottom line: if you’re not reading Maven’s Notebook, you’re not getting all the California water news and information you could be.
Maven’s Notebook is supported by donors and sponsors …
