Dear University of California Regents,
California’s water system is on the brink of collapse. If we fail to figure out our water supply, California fails as a state. Clamor from various users, be they Delta fishermen, Central Valley farmers or Southern California realtors is deafening. Each group tells the story in ways that suit their cases. Only one place, the University of California’s Water Resources Center Archives, is dedicated to systematic and impartial collection and cataloging of the kind of information that will help us find our way forward.
There could be no more foolhardy step than to dismantle the Water Resources Center Archives at the moment that they are most desperately needed. Please find a way to save and build the collection as a powerful way to save and build our state.
