History of Water in Orange County
The Past May Help the Future, Water Resources Official Says

Nov. 2, 2007 :: N0. 90


Can looking back in time help the region’s future water issues? It just might, says Bob Pierrotti, chief of resources assessment for the Southern California Department of Water Resources, who will discuss “Southern California’s Water Crisis,” during a Nov. 7 seminar hosted by Cal State Fullerton’s Geological Sciences Department.

When: 4:30-5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 7

McCarthy Hall (MH) 327
800 N. State College Blvd., Fullerton

Quote: “As the population continues to grow, coupled with the apparent change in climate, I believe there will be plenty of challenging work and opportunities for water professionals,” Pierotti said. “Although the focus of my presentation will be more on the history than the future of water in Southern California, I think the history of the field of water resources is important to provide a foundation for further study. Much of my talk will focus on the early development of the groundwater basin underlying the Los Angeles-Orange County coastal plain. I will review the hydrosphere and the importance of groundwater in it. Then I will discuss selected historical records that provide insight to the early use and development of water supply in Southern California.”
