Winter storms brought rain to the Santa Clarita Valley, but according to the state Department of Water Resources, California is not out of the drought yet. Whether above-average Sierra snowpack is enough to overcome three years of extreme drought remains to be seen. At “Water Matters: After the Storms,” SCV Water conservation and water planning staff will share the impact of the recent storms on the local water supply.
Customers can attend this free live virtual webinar on Wednesday, March 1, at 6 p.m.
“The storms we saw in California this winter were helpful to the state’s water outlook,” Sarah Fleury, SCV Water’s water resources planner, said in a prepared statement. “However, that doesn’t indicate that the drought is over. All of California is still in some level of drought, and officials are careful with loosening up restrictions because we just don’t know what the rest of the winter and spring holds in terms of precipitation.”
The audience will hear from a panel of subject matter experts, Fleury and her fellow Water Resources Planner Ernesto Velazquez, and Sustainability Manager Matt Dickens.
Attendees are requested to register by March 1 at noon. Community members who cannot attend the live event can view it afterward by visiting yourSCVwater.com/water-matters.
During the event, the panel will answer questions from attendees, as well as share key information, including:
- Water Supplies.
- Project Infrastructure.
- Drought Outlook.
