Feb. 1: Colorado agronomist Patrick O’Neill
Our San Joaquin Valley’s Critically Overdrafted Basins must submit Groundwater Management Plans for Department of Water Resources approval by year’s end. Local agency formation, analysis, and consensus-building has been ongoing since 2014’s passage of California’s Sustainable Groundwater Management Act. Colorado’s San Luis Valley is ten years ahead of us in a similar mandate to balance groundwater pumping with aquifer replenishment. Join host Tom Willey and Colorado agronomist Patrick O’Neill to learn from our neighbors’ experience.
