Center pumps out groundwater talks

You don't have to be a water wonk to appreciate our current series of public talks on California's groundwater, in person or on video.

Groundwater is out of sight but not out of mind during these severely dry times. Many California communities and farms are greatly depending on the limited resource to get by during the ongoing drought.

  • To learn how Yolo County manages groundwater, listen to the Feb. 2 presentation byTim O'Halloran, general manager of the region's water resources.
  • For a legal perspective on implementing California's new groundwater sustainability law, tune into the Jan. 26 talk by David Aladjem of the Downey Brand law firm, Sacramento.
  • To learn the politics in the making of the landmark 2014 groundwater law, watch the Jan. 12 presentations by Tina Cannon Leahy, principal consultant to the California Assembly Water Parks & Wildlife Committee; Kate Williams of the California Water Foundation; and Cindy Tuck with the Association of California Water Agencies.
  • For a primer on California groundwater, click on UC Davis Professor Graham Fogg's Jan. 5 talk.

​Next up: On Feb. 9, David Orth, general manager of the Kings River Conservation District in Fresno, presents "Groundwater management practices for local sustainability."
