As California and other Western states begin to measure the (so far slowly) accumulating snowpack, we’re turning our attention to some of the biggest water issues that will be facing the region in 2018.
What’s the fate of California WaterFix? Will California decide to allocate money to build its first big dam in decades? How will Western states cope with an increase in catastrophic wildfires and fund needed forest restoration? We’ll talk about these issues and more on January 11 at 10:30 a.m. PT/1:30 p.m. ET during a 30-minute conversation with experts. We will be joined by Jeffrey Mount, senior fellow with the Public Policy Institute of California, and Kimery Wiltshire, CEO and director of Carpe Diem West. Tara Lohan, Water Deeply’s managing editor, will moderate the discussion.
You can sign up for the call here, or by clicking the button below. We’d also love to know what issues are most important to you in 2018. If you’d like to give us your feedback or ask our editor or guests a question, email it to our community editor Ian Evans (firstname.lastname@example.org) or tweet us @WaterDeeply using #DEEPLYTALKS.
We hope you’ll join us.
