Since last January, the State Water Board has been working the Governor’s Office and an interagency Drought Task Force to make crucial decisions about how and when to allocate and conserve water resources.

Chair Felicia Marcus and Water Conservation Policy Advisor Max Gomberg will talk about and reflect on what has been accomplished to date, where the State Board was challenged in implementing regulations and what lessons learned will mean for their decisions in the next year of this drought, or the drought next time.
