SERG spotlights the future of CA water
With the recent onslaught of wet weather in the state and the awe-inspiring increase in reservoir levels and the Sierra snowpack, it’s been a wild winter of extreme weather! The U.S. Drought Monitor shows the majority of the state elevated from drought status; however, long-term effects of drought, such as overdrawn groundwater basins, remain. Climate change continues to fuel extreme weather, and we know that with record rainfall or heat, we will need to get creative to ensure that all Californians will have access to water. What solutions and strategies do we have in the works? What is being researched for the future, and what is a reality today?
On April 20, at 11 a.m., join the UCOP Sustainability Employee Resource Group (SERG) for an Earth Week capstone event, “The Future of Water in California,” celebrating research and insights into our ever-changing and complicated relationship with water in California. Two UC researchers will share their insights into the Golden State’s drought and water infrastructure, as well as current UC research for a sustainable future.
