California Institute for Rural Studies to Release Four Briefs on California's Water Infrastructure


CIRS is excited to announce the upcoming release of a series of four briefs on California’s water infrastructure. Initiated by Poppy Davis, these short papers aim to provide a road map to understanding the conversation around California water issues. This first brief explains California’s surface water infrastructure. The second brief will focus on ground water management.  A third brief will address water quality, and the fourth will summarize significant proposals and opportunities to address California’s water needs.  


"Poppy has been researching California water issues in depth since the drought was declared.  She feels that it is essential to understand the basics of California water infrastructure and management in order to understand proposed changes and existing limits.  We hope to provide this understanding at a crucial time." Gail Wadsworth, Executive Director, California Institute for Rural Studies


All briefs will be featured on our website in the 

Rural California Report Blog, with the first published today, Thursday, February 13, 2014 and then the next sequentially on February 17, 24 and March 3. They will be available as free downloadable files on our website.


Thank you for your continued support!
