CA State Board of Food and Ag to Have Water Listening Session in SLO

The California State Board of Food and Agriculture announced this week that they will host a public listening session on California’s Water Future on July 2, 2019, in San Luis Obispo.

The session is for state agencies to gather input from Californians on creating a roadmap for meeting future water needs and ensuring environmental and economic resilience through the 21st century. These listening sessions seek to broaden California’s approach on water in the face of a range of existing challenges, including unsafe drinking water, major flood risks that threaten public safety, depleted groundwater aquifers and agricultural communities coping with uncertain water supplies.

We encourage all WG members in the San Luis Obispo region to participate in the listening session. The meeting will be held from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the San Luis Obispo County Farm Bureau, 4875 Morabito Place, San Luis Obispo, CA 93401.

The Board intends to hold similar listening sessions in the coming months in agricultural regions throughout the state.
