Latest Western Water Rounds Up Summer Reading That You Won’t Want to Miss
Articles range from rethinking Southern California water portfolios to a downside of water conservation
So we want to help you catch up on Western Water articles from the first half of this year that you might have missed. They include Q&As with key water leaders such as California’s Natural Resource Secretary Wade Crowfoot and articles that spotlight efforts to achieve water sustainability or highlight unintended consequences of conservation.
In the latest Western Water, we recap those stories, including:
- How Southern California water providers are re-thinking their water portfolios to lessen their dependence on imported water.
- How Colorado River stakeholders have some difficult decisions ahead as they begin to hammer out a potentially sweeping agreement that could reimagine how the overworked river is managed.
- How the failure of a statewide bond measure is prodding water managers to look elsewhere for solutions to save an imperiled canal that’s vital for a key agricultural region.
- How a new administration in Sacramento plans to reshape the state’s approach to solving California’s many water challenges.
- How the connection between homelessness and water is gaining attention under California’s human right to water law — and amid water quality concerns from encampments near rivers and waterways.
