A Public Television Series: California's Water This is a multi-part series for public television produced by Huell Howser and underwritten by members of the Association of California Water Agencies (including Zone 7). This series explores California's water resources and the complex system of natural and man-made features that has allowed growing communities, productive farms, industry and ecosystems to co-exist in a state that receives little or no rain for months at a time.
A segment, "Beyond Drought: Factors Affecting California's Water Supply," includes an interview with Zone 7 general manager Jill Duerig and deals with the looming crisis in sustaining the Delta both ecologically and as a long-term water supply for more than 23 million Californians, including those served by Zone 7 and some other Bay Area Water agencies.
All of the California Water series segements are available for online viewing at www.acwa.com. In addition, Zone 7 has a limited number of DVDs from available for people to borrow. For information, call 925-454-5015.
