Turf Wars: SoCal Water Conservation Documentary & WaterFix Overview

david grannisJoin us on April 18, 2018 for a screening of Turf Wars: SoCal Water Conservation produced by David Grannis, California Lutheran University Assistant Professor of Communications, documenting the effects of the recent drought. The documentary looks at the issues surrounding the drought, the mandatory water rationing, the unprecedented conversion of millions of square feet of lawns to drought-tolerant landscaping and the general changes in water use and attitudes.

The documentary also looks at Southern Californians sources of water and how those are changing as well as the controversies related to agricultural vs urban water use, and the types of crops that are grown like almonds.

The presentation will be followed by a brief overview of the “California WaterFix” by Eric Bergh, Manager of Resources at Calleguas Water District and how the proposed WaterFix would affect Southern California.

Afterwards there will be a question and answer period that will include staff from the City of Thousand Oaks.
