Lester Snow to Talk About Historic Groundwater Legislation at Special Water 101 Workshop
Register Today for One Day or Both Days of the Oct. 2-3 Event

Attend the Water Education Foundation’s special Water 101 Workshop in Southern California in early October and hear from one of the people who helped formulate the historic groundwater legislation recently signed by Gov. Brown.

Lester Snow, executive director of the California Water Foundation and the former director of the Department of Water Resources, was a key player in the formulation of the package of groundwater bills – AB 1739, SB 1168 and SB 1319.

“The legislation gives locals the time, authority and resources they need to effectively and sustainably manage their groundwater supplies for current and future agricultural, municipal and environmental uses,” Snow said in a Sept. 16 press release.

“Gov. Brown, Senator Pavley and Assemblyman Dickinson are to be commended for their leadership in addressing this challenging issue,” he said. “Thanks to their commitment, California will no longer carry the dubious distinction of being the only state in the west that doesn’t have state standards and requirements for managing a resource as invaluable as groundwater.”

Snow leads a line-up of top experts who will provide an overview of the state’s water resources, its water system operations and water rights law. Other hot topics include the drought and the water bond on the November ballot.

Attend the first day or both days of the day-and-a-half workshop on Oct. 2-3 in Rancho Cucamonga near Ontario. Day two includes a governance primer geared toward water district board members. Attorneys can earn between 5 to 8 MCLE credits for attending this event.
