With the historic Sustainable Groundwater Management Act now law – what’s next? Issues related to implementation at the state and regional levels will be the focus of a panel discussion at the Foundation’s March 25 Executive Briefing in Sacramento.
Hear what’s in the Department of Water Resources’ recently released draft strategic plan identifying actions that need to be taken to help local agencies achieve sustainable groundwater management from Dan McManus, regional planning branch chief at DWR. Regional, on-the-ground activities will be discussed by executive director of the Regional Water Authority and Sacramento Groundwater Authority.
Other speakers include Lester Snow, executive director of the California Water Foundation, who was instrumental in the act’s passage and Gordon Burns, undersecretary of the California Environmental Protection Agency, who will discuss how the SGMA fits with the Governor’s Water Action Plan.
