Presentation: Energy Committee Program - “Delivering Water in the Face of Climate Change: Real-Time Operational Prescriptions for Water Managers to Operationally Predict and Respond to Changing Hydrology”

While political debates over climate change continue in Sacramento and Washington, D.C., the challenge of delivering water throughout the state in times of increasing uncertainty is resonating throughout the water industry. Hydrological and operational planning, the identification of effective strategies, and a thorough evaluation of the future risk/cost factors are lacking. Water managers today need to know, specifically, what can or should be done now, in terms of operational planning, new infrastructure, and economic realities. Come hear leading experts and practitioners in the field discuss the various challenges and prescriptive measures that will help assure reliable future water deliveries in light of the changing hydrology anticipated from climate change.
