Event Details

In the words of Jay Ziegler, director of external affairs for The Nature Conservancy in California, “although recent rain and snow leads to hope that California’s drought might be coming to an end, whether the drought is broken or not, Californians must act this year to achieve more sustainable long-term water management.”

The March Branch Program, in recognition of Women’s History Month and the contributions women are making every day to save our environment for generations to come, will feature Anne Lynch, a water resource engineer specializing in flood management, recycled water and water resource planning. Ms. Lynch is senior project manager with CH2M where she leads the Statewide Flood Management Planning Program as a consultant to the California Department of Water Resources. Ms. Lynch is also a member of the AAUW Sacramento Branch.

Ms. Lynch will discuss how she found her calling as a water resource engineer by discussing her career and notable projects in Texas and California. She will reveal how her work on these projects either bucked past trends, sought to solve emerging challenges, or maximize resources. She will then discuss the need to change the way we approach water resources in California in the future.

Our second speaker, Leslie Laudon, is Acting Deputy Director of the Division of Financial Assistance for the California State Water Resources Control Board., a member of the California Environmental Protection Agency. The mission of the Water Control Board is to preserve, enhance, and restore the quality of California’s water resources and drinking water for the protection of the environment, public health, and all beneficial uses, and to ensure proper water resource allocation and efficient use, for the benefit of present and future generations. Ms. Laudon will discuss some of the key projects of her organization and the path she took to arrive at her current position.

This program, sponsored by the Sacramento Branch Tech Trek Committee, promises to be inspiring, informative and fun. We hope to see you there.
