About the Program

The recent drought was a stress test for Bay Area cities. It revealed good preparation by local water agencies but also tensions between the state and local utilities brought on by state-mandated conservation. Join a panel of regional leaders for a discussion about building cooperative solutions to improve drought resilience in the Bay Area. We’ll discuss the Bay Area’s role in regional water management and innovation, and in addressing ecosystem needs.

This research was supported with funding from California Water Service, the S. D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation, and the US Environmental Protection Agency.
