Veterans Day Weekend Wrap-Up: Dry Weather; Desalination
Welcome back! Here’s the wrap-up from the Veterans Day Weekend:
At the top of the scroll: “California On Course for Driest Year On Record,” reported the San Francisco Chronicle. Weekend headlines also included the following: “Cloud Seeding, No Longer Magical Thinking, is Poised for Use This Winter” in The Sacramento Bee; “North Coast Reservoirs In Need of Rain” in the Santa Rosa Press Democrat; and “Groundwater Levels Falling at Alarming Rate While Lawmakers Decide What to Do” in The Modesto Bee.
Desalination also made news. “Proposed Desalination Plant Could Harm Ocean Environment, Report Says” was an article in the Los Angeles Times, and the Orange County Register ran an article, “Controversial Huntington Beach Desalination Plant Seeks Final Approval,” and editorial, “Don’t Stick It to Poseidon Project.”
Water Word of the Week: From sister site Aquapedia, the Water Education Foundation’s online water encyclopedia, read the post, “acre-foot: Aquafornia Water Word of the Week.”
Last Week’s Top Stories: The most viewed story was “Delta Tunnel Fight to Be Long, Costly, Panelists Warn,” an article in the Stockton Record. Excluding news articles, a Redding Record Searchlight editorial, “No New Water Via Twin Tunnels? Plan has Other Idea,” received the most views.
What’s on the Calendar? This week’s events include today’s Brown Bag Seminar, “Flow, Sediment, and Water Quality Monitoring in the Delta: A Case for a High-Frequency, Flux-Based Monitoring Program,” in Sacramento and “Parched California,” a panel Thursday, Nov. 14, by Climate One at The Commonwealth Club in San Francisco.
