A Conference on WATER
Water: Farmers need it,
environmentalists protect it, Southern California wants it and Northern
California has it. With a population of nearly 39
million, the demand for water is unprecedented in a state that has experienced
disputes over water virtually since its inception.
The year 2014
will prove pivotal in the history of California’s water development. Voters
in November will decide whether to spend some $6.5 billion on water infrastructure across California. And
the state is expected to make a final decision to go forward with a plan to
drill a pair of huge tunnels through the Delta to carry excess north state
water to the south, plus put in place new environmental safeguards. The $25
billion proposal would be the largest public works project in the country,
more than four times the cost of the new San Francisco Bay Bridge project.
On February 20,
2014, Capitol Weekly & UC Center will host A Conference on Water, a daylong
program looking at the future of water in California. It marks the 10th
