Join Danielle Dolan for presentations and discussion on effective tribal collaboration in California regional water planning Friday, Dec. 6, 1 p.m. - 4 p.m., at the UC Davis Student Community Center's multipurpose room.
Discussion panelists include California tribal representatives, leaders in water management and state Department of Water Resources staff. The event caps Dolan's research project for her M.S. in Community Development.
In 2002, the California Legislature passed the Integrated Regional Water Management Act to encourage local governments to collaborate on improving the the quality, quantity and reliabilty of local and imported water supplies. California Indian tribes have since been working to gain a greater voice in the regional water planning and decisionmaking process.
