 Groundwater Land Use Symposium Scheduled for October 29 in Clovis

Continued population growth and changing cropping patterns place additional stress on local groundwater supplies. Managing groundwater in the San Joaquin Valley to meet current and future needs is a significant challenge.

The Groundwater Land Use Symposium scheduled for October 29 in Clovis will present a statewide panel of experts to provide thought-provoking discussions about the correlation between land use and groundwater. Ellen Hanak, Senior Fellow of the Public Policy Institute of California, will open the Symposium providing her perspective on the connections between water policy and land use. Andrew Fahlund, Deputy Director of the California Water Foundation, will provide the keynote luncheon address. David Orth, Kings River Conservation District General Manager and California Water Commissioner, will discuss groundwater legislation and what it means for groundwater management in the Valley.
