Commission to host water resilience

California Natural Resources Building
Address: 1416 Ninth Street, Sacramento, CA 95814

Dear fish and wildlife stakeholder,
You are invited to participate in the Commission's Water Resilience Portfolio Initiative Listening Session to provide input on what

constitutes a "climate-resilient" water portfolio for California and, specifically, for fish and wildlife. Input received will help the California Natural Resources Agency, California Environmental Protection Agency, and California Department of Food and Agriculture craft recommendations for Governor Newsom to consider later this year.

 

The session will be held on August 8, 2019; the agenda is available at http://nrm.dfg.ca.gov/FileHandler.ashx?DocumentID=171193&inline. Background materials will be posted by August 5 to the Commission website at fgc.ca.gov/meetings/.

 

Join the Commission and help shape a roadmap for meeting future water needs and ensuring economic and environmental water resilience through the 21st century!

    Climate change and its impacts are occurring more rapidly than anticipated, and water supplies are feeling the impacts and will continue to do so in the future. At the same time the Trump administration is moving aggressively to speed up environmental review of water infrastructure projects and limit protections of endangered fish populations. That will be one of many critical federal and state policy topics we will cover during this program.

    You will also have an opportunity to hear practical tips for dealing with water quantity and quality issues. These include an update on the proposed Cadiz water project and a report on AB 658 which authorizes diversion permits allowing for excess surface water capture during high-flow events; Indian water rights settlements around the country; how to protect water quality through cultural water uses; tips for adapting Tribal water strategies to take advantage of opportunities arising from, or minimize the harm from, major recent court decisions; and how Tribes can most effectively influence the State of California's implementation of the Sustainable Groundwater Planning Act.

    Throughout, we will explore ways in which Tribes, local governments, and water agencies can work cooperatively to ensure an adequate and sustained supply of water for mutually beneficial uses into the future. We hope you can join us.
