Caltech Earth Week Speaker Series: Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta: The Epicenter of California's Water Challenge
Join us for a riveting discussion on the complexity of the proposed changes to the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta, the hub of California's water system. The Delta presents what is arguably California's most important test of successfully managing change in order to address the needs of the environment, economy and local communities simultaneously.
Curt Schmutte, civil engineer, consultant to the Metropolitan Water District and senior authority on California's water supply, will take us through the region's unique ecosystem and diverse recreational and agricultural economy. The challenges of the region range from declining health of fish species, island subsidence, potential levee failure, predicted sea level rise, water quality degradation and urbanization.
All members of the community are welcome to attend.
When: Monday, April 21, 2014 4:30pm-6:00pm
Where: Ramo Auditorium
