League of Women Voters Of Santa Monica To Host Update On Water Policies:

Water is on everyone’s mind with the recent proclamation by the governor, a snow pack that is only five per cent of the normal average and reminders from every direction to cut back.

In keeping with our mission to inform the community, the League of Women Voters of Santa Monica is hosting a presentation on state and regional water policies Saturday afternoon, April 25 at the Santa Monica Main Library.

Roberta Borgonovo, chairperson of the League of Women Voters of California (LWVC) Water Committee will join Luis Cetina, a principal government and regional affairs representative from the Metropolitan Water District (MWD) to bring us up to date on their responses to the water shortage.

A City representative will be on hand to answer questions about how state and regional policies affect residents in Santa Monica.

A founding member of the California Urban Water Conservation Council as well as LWVC representative to the CALFED Bay Area/Delta Council, Borgonovo will talk about the water bond passed by voters in 2014 that allotted more than $7 billion to address watershed, storage and suppy issues.

Cetina serves on the MWD’s Engineering and Water Management Committees and is also a member of the Association of California Water Agencies Water Management Committee. His experience at the MWD includes survey work, water supply forecasting, and legislative and policy analysis.

This informational forum will be held on Saturday, April 25 from 2 to 4 p.m. in the Multi-Purpose room of the Main Library at 601 Santa Monica Boulevard. Admission to the forum is free.

The Big Blue Bus Lines 1, 7 and 8 stop at the Library, and there is underground parking available for a fee.
