The Water Association of Kern County is hosting a water legislation update panel discussion and luncheon July 26 at 11:30 a.m. in the Renegade Room at Bakersfield College.

State Senators Melissa Hurtado (D-Sanger) and Shannon Grove (R-Bakersfield) along with Assemblyman Vince Fong (R-Bakersfield) will discuss a number of bills and statewide initiatives impacting water issues statewide and the impact in the San Joaquin Valley.

There is no shortage of topics, including the state’s drought response, potential new agricultural well restrictions, state funding for farmland repurposing, water storage projects, state and federal negotiations over operations in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta and how the drought may affect residential water use.

Just to name a few.

Cost to attend is $25 for Water Association members and $30 for the general public.
