The Groundwater Resources Association of California (GRA) created the David Keith Todd Distinguished Lecture Series to honor Dr. David Keith Todd (GRA 1999 Lifetime Achievement Award recipient) for his enormous contributions to groundwater science and technology, and to foster interest and excellence in applied groundwater science and technology. Annually, the lectureship is awarded to qualified individuals who personify Dr. Todd's lifelong dedication to groundwater resources. Specially created lectures are offered in Northern and Southern California at universities, statewide and regional GRA events and GRA's Annual Conference and Meeting.

2015 Marked the fifth year of the David Keith Todd (DKT) Distinguished Lecture Series, featuring Michelle Sneed (Northern California) and Dr. John Izbicki (Southern California) as the two distinguished speakers. Financial and logistical support was provided by sponsors Luhdorff & Scalmanini, Geosyntec Consultants, Regenesis, and Todd Groundwater, the lecturers' organizations, and hosting institutions.
