California County Café Series - July 24, 2024

The Department of Water Resources (DWR), in partnership with California State Association of Counties (CSAC), is convening a new series of virtual roundtable-style gatherings for county staff who are responsible for the planning and implementation of SB 552 of 2021 (Hertzberg). This series is scheduled in response to feedback DWR received from counties in 2023 at the end of the collaborative development of the County Drought Resilience Planning Guidebook, where counties emphasized the benefits and values of sharing information and practices. The purpose of the C3 Series is to:

  • Strengthen the County network to promote and make progress in drought resilience throughout the state.
  • Share experiences, best practices, and insights to advance the implementation of SB 552.
  • Identify and address immediate needs for those developing their County Drought Resilience Plan.

The C3 series is open to County staff and managers responsible for SB 552 implementation, especially the development of their corresponding County Drought Resilience Plan. Elected officials, regulatory agencies, and interested parties are welcome to tune in.

The next meeting of the California County Café (C3) Series will take place on July 24, 2024 from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. via Zoom, please register for the gathering here. This next session will focus on the Risk Assessment required for the development of Counties Drought Resiliency Plans.
