LA’s Water Resource Future Workshop Series
Part 2: Understanding Local Groundwater Storage Potential
Wednesday, June 15, 2016, 9 AM – 4:30 PM
UCLA

In support of UCLA's Sustainable LA Grand Challenge, the Center for Climate Change Solutions is co-hosting a two-part workshop series investigating how more local stormwater can be harnessed to decrease the Los Angeles region's dependence in imported water. The second workshop in the series will focus on the region’s groundwater basins: how they are managed, how rights are distributed, and how the impacts of sea level rise can be modeled and planned for. The event is open to the public, but space is limited. Learn more and RSVP here

LA’s Water Resource Future Workshop Series
Part 1: Understanding Local Stormwater Capture Potential
Friday, February 19, 2016
UCLA

The first in the LA’s Water Resource Future series, this workshop explored the state of stormwater management and planning in the LA region, future climate change impacts on stormwater, potential ecosystem benefits of stormwater capture, and strategies to incentivize stormwater capture.

Upcoming Event: LA's Water Resource Future Workshop

On June 15, 2016, the Center will co-host an interdisciplinary workshop bringing researchers, engineers, and resource managers together to explore how the LA region can better harness stormwater to enhance local water supply. The second in the “LA’s Water Resource Future” series, this workshop will focus on the region’s groundwater basins: how they are managed, how rights are distributed, and how the impacts of sea level rise can be modeled and planned for. The event is open to the public, but space is limited. Learn more and RSVP here.
