The Groundwater Resources Association of California (GRA) invites you to join us for a Symposium focusing on the implications of Climate Change for groundwater supplies. Regardless of the uncertainties in various Climate Change scenarios, the State of California is taking aggressive steps based both in legislation and agency policies. Immediate actions range from initiatives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to consideration of Climate Change under CEQA in Environmental Impact Reports and these initiatives will also trickle down to water resources and groundwater supply estimates and management.
GRA is assembling a distinguished group of invited and abstract-solicited speakers on Climate Change and groundwater to present a 1day Symposium. The goal of the Symposium is to address what is known, what is predicted, what to expect in terms of state guidance, and what water resources technical and management professionals can do to study their own systems, update their own predictions, and manage and plan for Climate Change impacts on water resources.
Speakers will include officials from the Department of Water Resources the California Energy Commission, the California Environmental Protection Agency, scientists from leading California Universities, the United States Geological Survey, the United States Environmental Protection Agency, groundwater professionals, and water managers from throughout California. This symposium should provide valuable cutting-edge information to: climate change and water resources researchers, public policy/planning professionals, groundwater and water resource agencies/consultants and legal professionals.
Please see the detailed Program Agenda for additional Symposium content.
