Oroville Dam and Flood Management Added to Briefing Agenda
Join us March 23 in Sacramento

Hear the story behind the headlines of the recent Oroville Dam spillway incident and challenges in flood management operations sparked by the recent heavy rains and the coming snowmelt.

The topic was just added to the agenda for the Foundation’s 34th Annual Executive Briefing, to be held this Thursday in Sacramento.

Discussing Record Rain, Reservoirs and Flood Management will be:

  • David Gutierrez, Senior Water Resources and Geotechnical Engineer, GEI, and former Chief, Division of Safety of Dams, California Department of Water Resources
  • Joseph Countryman, Member, Central Valley Flood Protection Board

Their talk will add to an already provocative lineup of speakers discussing the most pressing water issues facing California from real ways to improve water sustainability by creating “new” water to headline-grabbing topics such as the controversial Delta flows proposal and efforts to avoid a Colorado River shortage. 

Keynote addresses will be given by Sen. Robert Hertzberg, chair of the Senate Natural Resources and Water Committee and Fran Spivy-Weber, recently retired as vice-chair of the State Water Resources Control Board.
