Join us November 26, 2019 – Commonwealth Club – California’s Wildfires – Community & Water Supply Protection

Program Description

We’ve all inhaled a lot of wildfire smoke over the past few years in Northern California. Fueled by a rapidly warming climate, these catastrophic wildfires are burning down our communities, are hard on our physical and mental health and can play havoc with our water supply. What are communities doing to protect their homes and their water supply? What are drinking water utilities and the State of California doing to address these wicked problems? In this program, we’ll discuss the actions a large Bay Area water utility is taking to protect the “green” and built infrastructure that delivers your water. We’ll hear from the State’s forest health lead on the focus of their work. Finally, we’ll present a few examples of steps other communities around the West are taking.

Speakers

Jennifer Montgomery – Director, California’s Forest Management Task Force
Kimery Wiltshire – CEO, Carpe Diem West
Marguerite Young – Board President, East Bay Municipal Utility District
