Foundations for California's Water Security in a Changing Climate

The cornerstone of water security, and priority need for California, is a modern, robust water-information system that enables accurate, timely, and transparent accounting through the water-supply and use cycle.  This system must extend from mountain headwaters through valley groundwater.

The recommendations in this policy position paper were written by Roger Bales, Professor, University of California (UC), Merced, Merced, California, United States, and co-authors Martha Conklin and Joshua Viers, Professors, UC, Merced; Andrew Fisher, Professor, UC, Santa Cruz; Graham Fogg, Professor, UC, Davis; and Michael Kiparsky, Wheeler Water Institute, UC, Berkeley.

The paper  is part of the ISGP conference Water and Fire: Impacts of Climate Change, presented  in partnership with California State University-Sacramento.
