Sacramento Luncheons

 

The Floodplain Management Association and the Groundwater Resources Association of California are Co-Sponsoring the June Sacramento Luncheon

 

WHEN: Thursday, June 21st, 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

WHERE: City of Sacramento Utilities Office, 1395 35th Ave., Sacramento, CA 95822
               Solon Room – Located in the building behind the Administration Building

 

TOPIC: “Flood-MAR – Using Floodwater for Managed Aquifer Recharge” - With the effects of climate change necessitating wholesale changes in how water is managed in California, “Flood-MAR” presents a sustainable strategy that can simultaneously accommodate longer and deeper droughts, and more severe and frequent episodic and seasonal flooding.   Flood-MAR is an integrated water resource management strategy that uses flood water resulting from, or in anticipation of, rainfall or snowmelt for managed aquifer recharge on agricultural lands and working landscapes.  Flood-MAR can also be implemented at multiple scales, from individual landowners diverting flood water with existing infrastructure to using extensive detention/recharge areas and modernizing flood management infrastructure and operations.

SPEAKER: 
Kamyar Guivetchi was appointed Manager of the Division of Statewide Integrated Water Management in August 2008 with the California Department of Water Resources (DWR). During his 39 years with DWR, Kamyar has worked on many technical and planning projects with the North-Central Region Office, Division of Planning, Bay-Delta Office, and Division of Environmental Services managing the Suisun Marsh Program.  He chairs the 30-member State Agency Steering Committee for preparing Water Plan Update 2018, and is the State Co-chair of the California Biodiversity Council’s Executive Committee.
