ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Water has been a hot topic this fall, with all eyes focused on a legislative package to address California’s water woes. The solutions coming out of Sacramento represent progress, but they are only first steps on a long path toward sustainable water management. This half-day event, coinciding with the release of a new PPIC report, California Water Myths, brings together the authors and other noted water experts to assess how we can rebuild public policy discussions about water on myth-free foundations, to continue with needed reforms.
