Water expert to address state/local issues

“A Catalyst to Solving California’s Water Divide” is the title of a June 8 Educational Forum, featuring water expert Steve Baker.

Local water issues are inextricably linked to California commerce as a whole, and water underlies just about every aspect of life in California, such as agriculture, industry, power generation and recreation. For many Nevada County residents relying on wells and septic systems, groundwater issues are of special local concern. Baker will examine vulnerabilities in the Nevada County region that expose residents to losing their water supply.

Baker is a hydrogeologist who lives on 10 acres in Nevada County. His water supply comes from a groundwater well. In this month’s Educational Forum, sponsored by the Nevada County Democrats, Baker asserts that it’s time to band together under a common community goal regarding water. He will also be discussing issues surrounding the proposed Centennial Dam.

Since Tuesday is election day, this event will take place at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday June 8 at the Peace Lutheran Church, 828 West Main St. in Grass Valley. Pizza and salad will be provided and beverages will be available for purchase. For more info, call 530-265-3367 or visit http://www.nevadacountydemocrats.com.
