Environment & Sustainability
The second workshop in the LA's Water Resource Future Series will focus on current and future groundwater basin conditions, management, and rights in the groundwater basins serving Los Angeles County. The event will engage stakeholders and the research community in order to inform both the scientific research and policy analysis and recommendations that UCLA intends to undertake under the auspices of the Sustainable LA Grand Challenge. The day is set up for four sessions/panel presentations and discussions.
