Annual Sierra Water Workgroup Summit to be held August 10, 2015

 

From Sierra Water Workgroup

This year’s Sierra Water Workgroup event is a full-day workshop focused on issues and tools around the theme “Protecting Our Water.”

The issues will include:

  • Quantification – how do we figure out how much we actually have;
  • Beneficial and Reasonable Use in the Sierra – What do with what we have;
  • Quality – source protection, legacy mining, forest planning, etc.; and
  • How we interact with the pressures on and interests in the sierra water supply exerted by the needs of the rest of the state – particularly in times of drought and in light of climate change.

The event will spend the day framing questions about how these issues can be addressed with specific tools and concrete action, including timelines and assignments, as opposed to simply doing additional planning. We will investigate the trending policies regarding these issues in California and how are dollars expected to follow those policy trends.

Come prepared with your region’s specific high-priority concerns framed by the broad issues above and receive consultation from big shot lawyers and issue and policy experts. There will also be time for mingling and networking. We can’t wait to see you again, or for the first time, this year!
