Workshop #2: Drought Resilience in the North San Joaquin Valley Region

Drinking water utilities in California’s North San Joaquin Valley face continuing groundwater quality and overpumping challenges. On June 20th, our research team, along with 17 workshop attendees representing drinking water utility managers, state, municipality, local government, nonprofit organizations, and a religious institution, gathered in the Modesto City Hall to reflect on and discuss drought impacts, challenges, and needs for long-term resilience. The workshop would not have been possible without the assistance of Jim Alves, Associate Civil Engineer for the City of Modesto. A huge thank you to Jim and all of the workshop attendees for taking time out of their busy schedules to discuss and provide invaluable information on their experiences with the most recent California drought.

Our next Regional Drought Resilience Workshop will be held in Salinas on July 27th.
