Share Resources Roundtable: California in Drought

Event Details

California is experiencing its worst drought in recorded history, but droughts are not new to California. Over the past 150 years, during which California’s water infrastructure and its expectations for water supply developed, may have actually been a wet anomaly in California’s deeper history of aridity. Adding climate change-induced variability, drought will be part of the ‘new normal’ for California.
