Dr. William Cooper

With the recent mudslides, devastating fires, and high winds that accompanied many of the fires, water is again center stage in California. With California’s role in agriculture, this issue has national implications; it has been calculated that every person in the U.S. consumes 300 gallons of California water in the food they eat. Legal issues like prior appropriation water rights, Southern California’s reliance on water imported from Northern California and the Colorado River, and a changing climate all play our water future. Learn about California’s water supply and the threats it faces now and in the future in this lecture by Dr. William Cooper, professor of civil and environmental engineering and director of the Urban Water Research Center at the University of California, Irvine.
