NEGOTIATING STEERING COMMITTEE FOUNDATIONAL BRIEFINGS

The NSC conducted several foundational briefings, as part of the educational phase of the Water Forum II process.  The purpose of these sessions was to establish a foundation of shared understanding about cross-cutting issues that will inform various elements of the Water Forum II Agreement. In the summer of 2020, the NSC convened special briefings for Water Forum members and others on climate change, fisheries, groundwater and surface water interaction, and state requirements related to water conservation and urban water management planning.
