Goals:The goal of the meeting is to provide a forum for interested stakeholders to discuss water quality and water supply with CALFIRE staff in preparation for our upcoming 2015 Assessment of Forests and Rangelands.
- To discuss the role of forest and range management for the consercation and enhancement of water quality and water supply.
- To discuss water management at both a statewide scale as well as a local scale.
Background:Protecting and managing forests in source watersheds is an essential part of future strategies for providing a sustainable supply of clean water for a broad range of beneficial uses. A water supply analysis identifies locations where high value water supply coincides with high threats and thus represents areas where stewardship projects are most needed. A water quality analysis identifies locations where high value water assets in watersheds supporting a broad range of beneficial uses coincide with high risks that threaten water quality.
