From page A9 | July 20, 2014 |

“Groundwater: Past, Present and Future” will be the topic of Carl Hauge’s free talk at 3 p.m. Thursday, July 31, at the Hotel Woodland, 436 Main St. in Woodland.

Hauge’s presentation is co-sponsored by the Northern California Water Association, the Water Resources Association of Yolo County and the Yolo County Farm Bureau.

The WRA and the Farm Bureau are collaborating on a “Year of Groundwater” initiative, in which local public agencies, private landowners and agricultural interests are working together to promote and advance local groundwater sustainability.

“Severe drought conditions are impacting water management in our communities, and the governor, Legislature and state regulatory agencies are considering new groundwater regulations,” said Woodland Mayor Pro Tem Bill Marble, who chairs the Water Resources Association board of directors. “The drought and proposed regulations have motivated Yolo County interests to focus on groundwater issues this year.”

Hauge is the retired chief hydrogeologist with the California Department of Water Resources and the recipient of the David K. Todd Lifetime Achievement Award from the Groundwater Resources Association for his contributions to groundwater science and technology.

His service with the state included work on groundwater, land subsidence, water management, proposed dam site evaluation, data management and well standard projects.

A reception will follow in the courtyard of the Woodland Hotel, sponsored by Luhdorff and Scalmanini Consulting Engineers. Those planning to attend are asked to RSVP to Danyella at dherrera@norcalwater.org.
