Santa Barbara Luncheon Series - What Does the Future Look Like for Water in Santa Barbara?
An assortment of sandwiches, salads, and drinks will be provided.
After more than five years of drought in California, water year 2017 has seen above-average precipitation and snowpack, inspiring many to ask, "is the drought over?" especially after Gov. Jerry Brown officially ended the drought state of emergency in almost all California counties.
The answer to this question is quite difficult as it requires consideration of several influencing factors: California's three primary sources of water (surface water, snowpack, and groundwater), climate change as a significant contributor to the drought problem, desalination as an alternative source of fresh water, to mention a few.
Joshua will give us an insight into Santa Barbara’s water situation, how we handled the drought and how we prepared ourselves for the future. He will talk about Santa Barbara’s desalination plant project and how the facility is working as of right now and in the future. He will give answers to questions like “have our water problems been resolved by this winter’s rains?”, "are our water challenges over with the Desalination plant online?" or "What does the future look like for Water in Santa Barbara?"
