So what do a biologist, economist, engineer and geologist have in common? An interest in California’s most pressing water resource management problems. Scientists, faculty, students and researchers at UC Davis’ Center for Watershed Sciences collaborate across the UC Davis campus and with experts from other universities, research institutes, government agencies and NGOs.

Together they address critical issues affecting streams, rivers, lakes and estuarine ecosystems within California’s Central Valley, the Sierra Nevada and San Francisco Estuary. By working across disciplines, they are at the forefront of providing up-to-date scientific approaches to watershed science and policy to best meet the diverse demands placed on these resources.

This blog is intended to provide thought-provoking ideas and information on water issues in a digestible form for a policy and educated lay audience. We hope you find it useful, or at least interesting.
