The controversial 2014 California Water Bond will allow the state government to borrow $11.1 billion to overhaul our water system. To educate voters about this complex measure, currently on track for the November ballot, the Brower Center has gathered a prestigious group of experts supporting and opposing the bond. Allocations include funds for water storage projects, ecosystem protection, groundwater protection, and technology solutions such as desalination – all of which draw passionate supporters and detractors. The evening will feature conversations representing a wide variety of viewpoints, including Central Valley farmer Stuart Woolf, the Pacific Institute’s Peter Gleick, and former Deputy Secretary of the California Natural Resource Agency and top water advisor to Governor Jerry Brown, Jerry Meral. The evening will be moderated by Dave Sunding of the UC Berkeley College of Natural Resources.
