New Video Highlights Importance of Headwaters/ Watershed Management by Caroline Minasian Oct 15, 2019 Water News ACWA has co-sponsored a new educational video, “Beyond the Brink: California’s Watershed” to highlight the importance of headwaters and watershed management. The 26-minute video is produced by Jim Thebaut and The Chronicles Group and is a collaboration with several entities dedicated to improving the health of California’s forested watersheds. Headwaters serve an important role in California’s water management system. Healthy forests have multiple benefits, including increased water supply reliability, improved water quality, reduced impacts from catastrophic wildfires, increased renewable energy supplies, improved response to climate change and enhanced habitat. ACWA members are encouraged to use the video to help educate customers, elected officials and other stakeholders about this important issue. Members can download the video and promo from ACWA’s website. With many of the state’s headwaters increasingly at risk of wildfires and other threats, ACWA actively supports state and federal policy to help safeguard California’s future water supply reliability and water quality. “I believe we are at a point where we are finally close to a scale we have never seen before, coming together around this issue to really try to change the course that we’re on,” said Executive Director Dave Eggerton. The Chronicles Group is a nonprofit corporation formed for the purpose of educating the public about profound issues that affect both human and ecological systems.
