Southern California Water Committee to Hold Two Events to Workshop Bay Delta Conservation Plan
On Friday, July 19th, the Southern California Water Committee is holding the first of two events that will feature a panel discussion on their Bay Delta Conservation Plan in Los Angeles. Key leaders from the State Resources Agency will lead the sessions, one in LA and one in Orange County, to discuss the latest plans to address challenges in the Bay Delta--source of drinking water for 25 million Californians.
Among these state conservation leaders is Dr. Jerry Meral, Deputy Secretary of California Natural Resources Agency. Dr. Meral was appointed to his position in 2011, but has been involved in water issues for decades. His résumé includes time as deputy director of the California Department of Water Resources, executive director of the Planning and Conservation League, and director of the western water program of the Environmental Defense Fund.
The event will be held from 10 am to 12 pm in the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce. See the flyer below for information on how to register.
A week later on Friday July 26th, the SCWC will be holding the second of their Bay Delta Conservation Plan workshops in Irvine. The event, which will be held in the Irvine Ranch Water District, will feature a lunch and keynote speaker in addition to the workshop and panel discussion. To register or read more about the event, see the flyer attached below.
The Bay Delta is vital to 25 million Californians, as well as thousands of acres of farmland. Not to mention the endangered species who depend on the habitat of the delta for their survival. The Southern California Water Committee is committed to reaching a state consensus on issues regarding the delta. They encourage city, county, and state leaders to get involved in making sure the delta is used in a sustainable and reliable manner.
