    Notice of Meeting

    On Thursday, January 28, 2010, the Little Hoover Commission will conduct a public hearing on water governance. The hearing will begin at 9 a.m. in Room 437 of the State Capitol in Sacramento.

    In this study, the Commission is examining the management and governance of California’s water supply. At this hearing, the Commission will discuss future water governance, water use efficiency, groundwater management and storage, and strategies for streamlining the water transfer process.

    The Commission will hear from a senior consultant with the Resources Legacy Fund on water planning and management. A panel of two participants will discuss using markets and regulation for efficient water use. That panel will include a University of California, Davis, professor and chair and the executive director of the State and Federal Water Contractors Agency. Finally, a second panel will discuss water storage and conveyance, including groundwater options. That panel will include the general manager of the Kern Water Bank Authority and a senior hydrologist with the California Water Program of The Nature Conservancy.

    There will be an opportunity for public comment at the end of the hearing. The Commission also encourages written comments. A business meeting will follow the hearing.
