Water 101, sponsored by the Water Education Foundation was
held February 18-19, 2014, on the UC Davis campus. This day
and a half course was designed for anyone interested in
learning more about the history of and the management structure
of water in California, and about the key water issues facing the
state. The course is especially beneficial to water resource
industry staff, engineering and environmental firm personnel,
legislators, legislative staff, press, advocates, stakeholders,
environmentalists, public interest organizations and water
Convened by the Santa Ana Watershed Project Authority (SAWPA) and coordinated by the Water Education Foundation, this conference was held April 11 at the Westin South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa and featured a range of presentations aimed at encouraging regional players to work together to tackle the industry’s most pressing issues.

Santa Ana River Watershed 2012: Implementing the Vision discussed the importance of the Santa Ana River Watershed and how we will implement plans to improve the quality and reliability of our water supply. This was a working conference with audience feedback.
The purpose of this day-and-a-half workshop was to provide water
managers on both sides of the border with an overview of remote
sensing data and tools that could be applied to binational water
management issues, building on experience gained from NASA’s
recent research project (funded by the American Recovery and
Reinvestment Act of 2009) to demonstrate potential use of
existing remote sensing data sets for water resources
applications in California.
