News Release: UC Davis Receives Major Gift to Advance Science that Addresses California Water Problems
From the University of California, Davis:
“The University of California, Davis, will build on its success as a center for problem-solving research on California’s critical water issues thanks to a $10 million gift to the Center for Watershed Sciences.
“The gift from the S. D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation will enable the Center for Watershed Sciences — the state’s leading academic institute on water management — to expand its scientific research and public engagement capabilities on the state’s increasingly difficult water problems.
“These problems include drinking water safety and reliability, flood protection, agricultural production, hydroelectric power, recreational use and the survival of salmon and other native fish species.”
