THE NEXT WAVE: Can Californias Water Ever Be Sustainable?

Hammer Museum

10899 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90024

7:30pm

Co-presented with the UCLA Institute of the Environment and Sustainability With a growing population, ongoing drought, and the increasing impact of climate change, California has no choice but to better manage its limited water resources. Weve seen the consequences of mismanagement through a degrading delta ecosystem, overdraft of groundwater basins statewide, and numerous farms without water allocations. Clearly we cannot continue in this vein. Mark Gold, acting director, UCLA Institute of the Environment and Sustainability, moderates a panel with Jeffrey Kightlinger, general manager, the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California; Felicia Marcus, chair, State Water Resources Control. THE NEXT WAVE: QUALITY, QUANTITY, AND ACCESSIBILITY OF WATER IN THE 21ST CENTURY Throughout 2015, the Hammer and the UCLA Institute of the Environment and Sustainability explore the most pressing issues surrounding the current and future state of water. Topics explored in this monthly series include Californias water supply, rising sea levels, hydraulic fracturing (fracking), the L.A. River, ocean acidification, plastic pollution, international water supply, and water rights.
