Colloquium: Environment and Politics in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta

The California Colloquium on Water presents

"When the Environment and Politics Collide: Recent Developments in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta"

Mike Taugher
Environmental Reporter, Contra Costa Times

December 5, 2006
5:30 - 7:00pm
Goldman School of Public Policy, Room 250
(Corner of Hearst and LeRoy)

Meet the speaker at a reception at the Water Resources Center Archives,
4:45pm - 5:30pm.
Light refreshments will be served.

Summary:
In early 2005, scientists noticed that fish populations in the Delta were mysteriously collapsing. It was the latest and loudest environmental alarm for what is perhaps the most important source of water in a state that this utterly dependent on being able to move water around. The ecological crisis in the Delta was also a sign that the policies in place to protect the Delta and California’s water supply were failing. Contra Costa Times reporter Mike Taugher will talk about the environmental and public policy problems confronting the Delta and the ongoing efforts to resolve them.
