New Delta & California Water Legislation: How will the Bay Area be affected?
Concerned about the future of the San Francisco Bay Delta, the linchpin of the state’s water system? Wondering what the new package of water bills just passed will mean for the Bay Area? Bay Area elected officials and staff, water agencies, local businesses, fishing interests, regional agricultural interests, environmentalists, media, state government staff, and interested public are invited to attend a free forum on Thursday, December 10, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Oakland Marriott CityCenter, 1001 Broadway (Downtown Oakland, near 12th BART Station).
Sponsored by the Association of Bay Area Governments’ San Francisco Estuary Partnership, this timely forum will help attendees decipher the latest Delta- and water-management-related legislation and proposed bond measures. Resource and water policy experts will explore what the recently passed water and Delta legislation mean to Bay Area constituencies and discuss the changes in water policy. An overview of the Bay Delta Conservation Plan will be presented, spotlighting how it will affect Bay Area citizens, businesses, agriculture, wildlife, and water agencies. In addition, the implications of passing or not passing the proposed 2010 $11 million bond will be examined.
