29th Biennial Groundwater Conference

29th Biennial Groundwater Conference

For more than 50 years, the Biennial Groundwater Conference has provided policy-makers, practitioners, researchers, and educators the opportunity to learn about the current policies, regulations, and technical challenges affecting the use and management of groundwater in California. This year's conference will focus on the challenges that California faces in integrating various aspects of water quantity and quality in a changing regulatory, political, and environmental climate. Collaborative efforts have initiated integration of groundwater into the framework for California Water Plan Update 2013 , and with many basins in decline and Delta through-flows constrained, groundwater policy and regulatory discussions in the coming years are expected to increase significantly in fervor and frequency.
