The Great Thirst: Water Wars in Mendo and the North Coast
Thursday, September 29
The Spring House
304 Spring St., Ukiah
Join local journalist Will Parrish as he leads a discussion on water woes in
Mendocino County and the greater California North Coast, from the wine
industry’s depletion of creeks, streams, and groundwater to the politics
of the Eel River dams to the “peripheral canal” water export scheme that
will soon be before California voters. Who controls our water? Who has
access to it? And what are we going to do about it?
