California Water History: Navigating the Seven C’s

Online

The history of water in California is colorful, insightful, and arguably, one of the most manipulated and impacted natural water regimes on earth. It is also one of the most complex institutional, regulatory and legal water management frameworks ever envisioned. This course will provide a handy guide to how we got here – and offer some game changing policy recommendations for how we might move forward in a more sustainable way. From early Conflict to environmental Collapse; from two centuries of Competition to three decades of attempted Cooperation and Collaboration; and toward an era of Conservation and Continual dispute resolution, this class will chart those turbulent waters. Examining not just the history of water use, but of water quality efforts and efficiency, California’s water wars and water wins may provide insight about how to manage other scarce and critical natural resources.

This course will be available on Canvas from August 18-20, 2021. A live Zoom lecture and Q&A will be held on Friday August 20, 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM (PDT). In the classroom environment, this course is equivalent to a one-day course.

We allow registration through the first morning of the course. It is expected that students review the prerecorded lectures before the live sessions in order to get the most value out of these meetings.
