California Water Commission to Hold Public Workshops

By on November 27, 2020

The California Water Commission is conducting a series of virtual public workshops as part of its efforts to assess a potential state role in financing conveyance projects that could help meet needs in a changing climate. The Commission will use the information gathered at four regional workshops to produce a white paper for state policymakers that will describe the essential criteria for resilient water conveyance projects that meet the needs of a changing climate, the potential public benefits of such projects, and the implications of various financing options.

Participants from the region are encouraged to share their perspective on conveyance infrastructure needs and priorities, effective partnerships, public benefits of conveyance, possible criteria to assess resilience, efforts in preparing for changing hydrology, and effective financing mechanisms.

The public workshop schedule is as follows:

All workshops are from 2:45-5 p.m. (entry to meeting site opens at 2:30 p.m.) The workshops will be conducted via the web-based videoconferencing service Zoom.
