FEBRUARY LUNCH MEETING: California’s Drought Crisis - A Local Perspective
A quote from the Governor’s recently released California Water Action Plan: “After two years of dry weather and shrinking reservoir supplies, we are reminded once again that nothing focuses Californians’ attention on our limited water resources like drought.” California is entering its third year of drought, with the driest 2013 rainy season on record. This month’s meeting presentation will center around California’s drought, with a focused local perspective.
Dr. Charles Burt, Professor emeritus of Irrigation, and Chairman and Founder of the Irrigation Training and Research Center, California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, California, received a B.S. in Soil Science from Cal Poly, an M.S. in Irrigation and Drainage Engineering from Utah State University, and a Ph.D. in Engineering from USU. He is a Diplomate, Water Resources Engineer with the American Academy of Water Resources Engineers and is a Registered Professional Engineer in California in both Civil and Agricultural Engineering. Dr. Burt is also one of our newest Branch life members!
