Sacramento meeting to explain drought programs

Friday, April 11, 2014 • Sacramento, CA

Past Event:

Emergency drought legislation (SB 103) signed earlier this month by Governor Brown allocates $10 million to the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) for on-farm water conservation practices throughout the state. The funding will be used to establish the CDFA Water Efficiency and Enhancement Program, a grant program to increase water conservation through efficiencies and better management and reduce greenhouse gas emissions through energy efficiency.   

Two public stakeholder meetings have been scheduled in April 2014 to explain the new program and to receive comments and suggestions. These public meetings will be held on the following dates and at the following locations:
