Groundwater Key Topic at Water 101 Workshop
Lester Snow among the speakers addressing state's historic groundwater law
Speakers at next week’s Water 101 Workshop in the Sacramento area will talk about California’s new groundwater law and the important role that groundwater plays in the state’s supply.
The 2015 Sustainable Groundwater Management Act became effective Jan. 1. It was passed by the state Legislature last fall, making California the last state in the West to regulate groundwater pumping.
Lester Snow, former California Natural Resources secretary and current executive director of the California Water Foundation, and Tina Cannon Leahy, the Principal Consultant of the California Assembly Water, Parks & Wildlife Committee, will be among the speakers addressing the new law and what happens next as the law is implemented.
