Your Call: Who are California’s water power brokers?

May 3, 2015

On the May 4th edition of Your Call, we’ll kick off a weeklong series on California’s water crisis by discussing the forces that are controlling access to water in California.

On the March 17th edition of Your Call, we’ll continue with our weeklong series on California’s water crisis by talking about the state’s water infrastructure. An extensive system of levees, aqueducts and pipes supply water to 25 million Californians and three million acres of farmland. With the state entering its fourth year of a severe drought, what needs to change in order to adapt to a much drier future? Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

On the September 29th edition Your Call, we’ll have a debate about Proposition 1, the ballot initiative that would authorize a 7-and-a-half billion dollar state bond for water infrastructure projects. Proponents say Proposition 1 will clean up groundwater, expand recycling and storage capacity. Opponents say it’s too vague and does nothing to address long-term water shortages in California. It’s six weeks from Election Day - what questions do you have about Proposition 1?   Join the conversation with David Onek and you.

On today’s Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about water issues facing California. The recent rain has brought the total rainfall for the year to 4.64 inches. This is less than half the historical average. So what should we do to conserve water? Join us live at 10 or send an email to feedback@yourcallradio.org. Are we conserving enough water? How safe is our water? And what water issues concern you the most? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you
