Water planning for the future

Zone 7 member to speak on managing drought and abundance

First a drought, then a deluge. Managing water resources obviously takes some planning.

The public is invited to hear Zone 7 Water Agency Director Sarah Palmer speak on "California Water: Planning for the Future of Drought and Abundance," at 2 p.m. next Wednesday (March 13) at the Livermore Library, 1188 S. Livermore Ave., hosted by AAUW Livermore-Pleasanton-Dublin.

After the presentation, Palmer will answer questions about the water situation in the Tri-Valley. Discussions may continue in the library's Daily Grind Espresso Bar & Cafe.

Palmer, who has a Ph.D. in biochemistry, is a retired science teacher and has been on the Zone 7 Board of Directors since 2006. She also serves as vice president of the Association of California Water Agencies Region 5 board, is on the ACWA state board and on the Delta Conveyance Design and Construction Joint Powers Authority, which is responsible for the tunnels project.

Palmer is also an AAUW member, an avid hiker, painter and paddle boarder.
