Sacramento Luncheons

November Luncheon – Water Investment Storage Program

WHEN: Thursday, November 15th, 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

WHERE: City of Sacramento Utilities Office, 1395 35th Ave., Sacramento, CA 95822

                  Sacramento River Room

TOPIC: “Water Investment Storage Program” The California Water Commission recently approved eight projects that will boost California’s water storage capacity by 4.3 million acre-feet. Funded by Proposition 1, which dedicated $2.7 billion to invest in new water projects, the Water Storage Investment Program (WSIP) will include the expansion of existing reservoirs, the addition of groundwater storage, and the construction of new surface storage facilities. Through a rigorous selection process, the Commission chose the eight applicants based on the public benefits their projects will provide, such as flood control, improved river flows, protection of wetland habitats and an increase in emergency water supplies.

SPEAKER:  Joe Yun, Executive Officer California Water Commission. Most recently, Joe served as the Commission’s Interim Water Storage Investment Program Manager. Prior to joining the Water Commission Joe served as Chief of the Planning Grant Section in the Financial Assistance Branch of DWR’s Division of Integrated Regional Water Management, Joe managed multidisciplinary grant team implementations of various water management grant programs funded by general obligation bonds.  Before joining DWR, Joe worked for 13 years in private environmental consulting assisting clients on surface water, groundwater, and storm water quality projects, remedial investigations, and remediation programs.

PLEASE NOTE THAT SPACE IS LIMITED SO PLEASE REGISTER BEFORE 5:00PM TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 13TH TO ENSURE YOUR REGISTRATION IS COMPLETED ON-TIME FOR THE NOVEMBER 15th LUNCHEON. 

 

FMA Special Event – Estimates of Present and Future Flood Risk in the Contiguous United States

WHEN: Thursday, November 29th, 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

WHERE: City of Sacramento Utilities Office, 1395 35th Ave., Sacramento, CA 95822

                  Sacramento River Room

This presentation will be webcasted to the Oakland and San Diego luncheon locations

TOPIC: “Estimates of Present and Future Flood Risk in the Contiguous United States” Past attempts to estimate rainfall-driven flood risk across the US either have incomplete coverage, coarse resolution or use overly simplified models of the flooding process.  Flood depths generated using a new 30-meter resolution model of the entire conterminous US and a 2-dimensional representation of flood physics are combined with exposure datasets of commensurate resolution to calculate current and future flood risk. The new data shows that the total US population exposed to serious flooding is 2.6–3.1 times higher than previous estimates, and that nearly 41 million Americans live within the 1% annual exceedance probability floodplain (compared to only 13 million when calculated using FEMA flood maps). The research also projects that population and GDP growth alone are expected to lead to significant future increases in exposure, and this change may be exacerbated in the future by climate change.

SPEAKER:  Oliver Wing is a PhD researcher at the University of Bristol, funded by flood analytics firm Fathom. His research centers on considering flood risk at large spatial scales. In particular, he has worked with a continental-scale hydraulic model to quantify the new information this provides about flood risk in the US.

PLEASE NOTE THAT SPACE IS LIMITED AT THE SACRAMENTO LUNCHEON LOCATION SO PLEASE REGISTER BEFORE 5:00PM TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 27TH TO ENSURE YOUR REGISTRATION IS COMPLETED ON-TIME FOR THE NOVEMBER 29th LUNCHEON.
