Politicians, experts will discuss Measure I

By
From page A9 | January 30, 2013 |

A roundtable forum on Measure I, Davis’ proposed surface water project, will run from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday in the Community Chambers at City Hall, 23 Russell Blvd. It is co-sponsored by the People’s Vanguard of Davis, a local blog, and Davis Media Access.

Measure I will be decided in a mail-only election that concludes March 5. Ballots will be mailed next week to all registered voters in Davis.

Supporters and opponents of Measure I — Mayor Joe Krovoza and Water Advisory Committee member Alf Brandt for the proponents and former City Councilwoman Sue Greenwald for the opponents — will be joined by three technical experts — UC Davis professor Graham Fogg for hydrology, Rob Roscoe for finance and Walt Sadler for water policy.

Fogg is a professor of hydrogeology with specific expertise in groundwater contaminant transport, groundwater basin characterization and management, long-term sustainability of regional groundwater quality and vulnerability of aquifers to non-point-source groundwater contaminants.

Sadler has more than 40 years of experience both as a consultant and staff for municipal agencies; is past chairman of the Sacramento Groundwater Authority; and has been involved in the design, construction and management of numerous water supply projects, including aquifer storage and recovery wells, water supply wells, water treatment facilities, pump stations and distribution facilities throughout the Central Valley.

Roscoe has more than 35 years of experience in public water supply finance, management and engineering. He is president of Sacramento Suburban Water District Financing Corp.; general manager of the Sacramento Suburban Water District, which serves a population of about 170,000; and chairman of the Regional Water Authority representing water purveyors in Sacramento, El Dorado Placer and Yolo counties.

“The format will be a question-and-answer roundtable discussion among proponents and opponents of Measure I and technical experts on water,” said David Greenwald, executive director of the Vanguard, who will moderate the forum.

Davis Media Access will air the forum on cable Channel 15 and later via its website.

For more information about the forum, call Cecilia Escamilla Greenwald at 530-400-2511.
