Close to 300 people attended the AGWT program in Tulare, California for a one day forum dealing with groundwater overdraft issues in the Central Valley. The audience of growers, irrigation managers, engineers, hydrologists, agency professionals and attorneys shared information regarding the challenges, feasibility, regulatory concerns and the economic benefits of groundwater management options. Presenters from Texas, Kansas and Colorado explained the legal and administrative basis for groundwater management in their states. The event was planned by the AGWT in partnership with the Kaweah Delta Water Conservation District and the Tulare Irrigation District.
