Mission Impossible: Resolving the Conflicts over Water in the Delta?
Speaker: Alf W. Brandt, Legislative Director, Assemblyman Anthony Rendon
Monday, October 07, 2013
12:15 PM - 1:30 PM
Law School Room 1447
Alf Brandt, water resource law and policy expert for the California State Legislature, will discuss the ecosystem and management crisis in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. The Delta is the hub of the water supply system for much of California, and as the state's largest estuary, provides the habitat for many aquatic, avian, and terrestrial species. Balancing these needs and interests, and addressing related issues of flood management and protection in the Delta regions, is among California's most important environmental policy issues. Mr. Brandt will provide his perspective on the future of the Delta, drawing on his extensive experience as a lawyer and policymaker in both federal and state government service.
Lunch will be provided.
