UC Davis ‘Brainfood Talk’ looks at managing California’s water

From page A3 | January 05, 2014 |

Water management in California lurches from conflict to conflict, occasionally erupting in crises linked to floods, droughts and lawsuits. Learn more about the issues confronting the state at the UC Davis “Brainfood Talk” from noon to 1 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 9, at the Buehler Alumni Center on the UC Davis campus.

Jeffrey Mount, a UCD professor emeritus and founding director of the UCD Center for Watershed Sciences, will give an update on the challenges confronting California as it manages its surface water, groundwater and ecosystems along with a growing population and a changing climate.

“California is heading into a third year of drought, with major environmental and water supply consequences,” a news release said. “At the same time, the governor is proposing an ambitious water infrastructure and ecosystem restoration project to address the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, the weak link in California’s water supply system.

“The governor’s effort will surely spawn numerous lawsuits. All that is missing is a flood. The conclusion of the talk is that there is reason to be optimistic about our water future.”

This talk is sponsored by the UCD Emeriti Association and the UCD Retirees’ Association. Attendees should bring their own lunches; coffee, tea and cookies will be provided.

The Alumni Center is on the south side of the campus, near the Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts. The closest parking is in the South Entry Parking Structure. A UC parking permit is required; day permits are available for purchase for $8 at the entrance to the parking structure.

For more information, contact the UCD Retiree Center at 530-752-5182 or [email protected].
