A new report out today from Community Water Center, Clean Water Fund, and Union of Concerned Scientists highlights opportunities and strategies for engaging diverse stakeholders in California’s new system of groundwater management. “Collaborating For Success” draws on a wealth of research demonstrating the critical role of stakeholder engagement in achieving successful shared resource management.
On Wednesday, July 29th, residents from seven northern Tulare County communities met to participate in a summit regarding their region’s collective water future. These small, unincorporated communities have struggled to provide safe drinking water to their residents, because the region’s groundwater is contaminated with high levels of nitrates and the pesticide DBCP.
We are excited to announce the recent opening of a third CWC office in Arvin, CA! This office will serve as the hub for our South Kern County work to bring interim and long-term solutions for drinking water issues faced by the region.
Attention residents of Cutler, East Orosi, Orosi, Monson, Seville, Sultana, and Yettem! There will be an important meeting on Wednesday, July 29th about your region’s water future, and you are invited to attend! These communities are working toward a regional drinking water solution. Come to the meeting to learn more about this important project, ask questions, voice any concerns, and get involved.
