  • Phil Isenberg, Chair of the Delta Stewardship Council

California legislators and water managers all recognize the need for a sustainable water supply while preserving the ecosystem and protecting water quality and the environment. Ensuring a sustainable water supply requires integration of all aspects of water management (supply, land use, air, environment, habitat, storage, etc.) in order to achieve equilibrium of California water needs and demands. This symposium explores a different management approach – use of dynamic balancing to ensure resiliency of water management in California.

The objective of the symposium is for the Sacramento Chapter of EWRI to develop a White Paper that presents the key ideas and recommendations set forth by the diverse and distinguished panel members and participants that attended the Symposium. The White Paper will be provided to the Governor and other public officials that have influence on water management in California.
