      Director, UC Center for Watershed Science (UC Davis)

      Meet the speaker at a reception at the Water Resources Center Archives,

      Summary of lecture :
      The Sacramento- San Joaquin Delta supplies the valley with water for
      communities, agriculture, recreation, and habitats for fish and wildlife.
      But the evolving landscape and ecosystem of the Delta are changing at a
      pace that surpasses the scientific and political communities' ability to
      respond. Professor Jeff Mount will be discussing the principal issues
      impacting the future of the Delta and demonstrating how current trends will
      affect the future of its waterways. He will also address the fact that the
      "Delta debate" seems to be going nowhere. To conclude, Professor Mount will
      outline six broad future options for this important water supply hub in
      order to spark more discussion and debate.
