Coping With the California Drought Crisis
On November 24, 2014 at the request of the Long Beach Water Department the Aquarium of the Pacific convened a group of 10 water experts from throughout California and one from Arizona to characterize the severity of the Southern California drought, and to recommend what actions should be taken now to reduce its impact.
This report is a brief summary of the deliberations of that working group. It begins with the statement made to the media the day of the forum that was endorsed by all the participants. Following that is a short statement that provides more extensive context for the group’s findings and recommendations.
