  • Can California’s Water Ever Be Sustainable?

    With a growing population, ongoing drought, and the increasing impact of climate change, California has no choice but to better manage its limited water resources. We’ve seen the consequences of mismanagement through a degrading delta ecosystem, overdraft of groundwater basins statewide, and numerous farms without water allocations. Clearly we cannot continue in this vein. Mark Gold, acting director, UCLA Institute of the Environment and Sustainability, moderates a panel with Jeffrey Kightlinger, general manager, the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California; Felicia Marcus, chair, State Water Resources Control and Ellen Hanak, senior fellow, Public Policy Institute of California.
