Water supply crisis, solutions set for panel tonight

California water policy and management – and how to ensure a sustainable water supply locally – will be discussed in Nevada City today.

“What is Water Sustainability?” is from 7 to 9 p.m. today at City Hall, 317 Broad St., downtown Nevada City. A donation of $5 is suggested.

Panelists will address a broad spectrum of issues including water quality, agriculture, energy production and ecosystem collapse – and some possible solutions to this water crisis that may reside within the Yuba and Bear River watersheds.

A question-and-answer period will follow.

Participating panelists include Stephen Baker, hydrogeologist and groundwater expert; Carrie Monohan, hydrologist and science director with The Sierra Fund; Jason Rainey, executive director with the South Yuba River Citizens League; Steve Rothert, director of the California regional office for American Rivers; and Nick Wilcox, Nevada Irrigation District Division 5 director.

An exhibit at the APPLE Center explores possible solutions to this water, especially those at the individual, home, municipal and watershed scales. The APPLE Center is at 412 Commercial St., Nevada City. For more information, call (530) 478-1700 or e-mail Info@APPLECenter.org.
