Webinar: Bolstering Water Resilience in the Greater Capital Region

December 13th, 2:00-3:00 PM

Amidst long periods of extreme drought and brief levels of precipitation far above historical average, California’s Capital Region continues to explore innovative ways to effectively and reliably deliver water to its residents. This webinar hosted by the Capital Region Climate Readiness Collaborative (CRCRC) featured presentations from Paul Gosselin, Deputy Director with the Department of Water Resources, Ryan Ojakian, Legislative and Regulatory Affairs Program Manager with the Regional Water Authority, and Matt Cohen, Associate Engineer with the City of Woodland. This event highlighted key efforts from within the region this will include, among other efforts, recent investments from the State in local water resilience measures, the Sacramento Regional Water Bank, and innovative local actions such as the City of Woodland’s Aquifer Storage and Recovery (ASR) wells.

Capital Region Carbon Sequestration Workshop

December 7th, 1:00-5:00 PM

A larger percentage of statewide GHG emissions goals are expected to be achieved through Carbon Sequestration. What are local governments and on-the-ground practitioners doing to achieve these goals? CRCRC hosted this workshop, in collaboration with the California Air Resources Board (CARB), to highlight what is being done within the six counties of the Capital Region (El Dorado, Placer, Sacramento, Sutter, Yolo, and Yuba) to implement successful carbon sequestration practices. Practitioners from throughout the region provided informal presentations on their ongoing carbon sequestration projects, spoke to challenges funding this work, and share best practices with other practitioners within the region.

This was a practitioner-focused workshop, open to all agencies and organizations working on climate issues in our 6-county region.
