The Role of Watershed Restoration in Water Management

Watersheds come in all shapes and sizes. In the US, there are more than 2,267 watersheds. We all live in a watershed. Experts believe using a watershed approach will protect our water’s resources, and safeguard our communities from flood and drought. The ACTION report found in 2012 eight out of the 19 communities in San Luis Obispo County reported their water demand exceeded their supply, or their water delivery system had reached its capacity. How can these communities benefit by watershed restoration? What is the condition and health of watersheds on the Central Coast? What can the community do to ensure the health of our watersheds?

Fred Munroe is joined by guests with the Coastal San Luis Resource Conservation District, Nicole Smith, Conservation Program Manager, and Linda Chipping, Board Director to discuss this critical issue regarding water management.   

Central Coast Voices is sponsored by ACTION for Healthy Communities in collaboration with KCBX.
