California's Watershed: Beyond the Brink

July 16, 2018

Drought, climate change, aging infrastructure, and growing population threaten the water used in California's San Joaquin Valley. The San Joaquin Valley supplies most of the nation's produce and a large proportion of its livestock and dairy. Water scarcity in this region can create a ripple effect felt far beyond it.

"Adequate water for food for the nation is a water security issue, and it's also a national security issue." – Roger Bales, UC Water Co-Director and UC Merced Professor of Engineering

Learn about water problems and solutions from California's headwaters to groundwater in a new documentary, California's Watershed: Beyond the Brink. This video features UC Water researchers Roger Bales, Martha Conklin, Graham Fogg, and Helen Dahlke.
