California Water: 2018 and Beyond
Felicia Marcus, Chair California State Water Resources Control Board
For a bird’s eye view of California’s movement toward integrated water management, join us for a special seminar by Felicia Marcus, Chair of the State Water Resources Control Board for California. Ms. Marcus will offer insights about California’s efforts to reach across traditional geographic and organizational silos to create its 2014 California Water Action Plan. As climate change, population growth, and other drivers challenge our resources, Ms. Marcus will look toward the future and describe strategies and lessons we can all use to get the best water outcomes possible.
Felicia Marcus is Chair of the State Water Resources Control Board for California. Prior to this appointment, Marcus served in positions in government, the non-profit world, and the private sector including serving as the Regional Administrator of the U.S EPA Region IX under the Clinton Administration. Prior to that, she headed the Los Angeles’ Department of Public Works at a time when the City went from garnering lawsuits to garnering national awards for environmental excellence. Marcus received her juris doctorate from New York University School of Law in 1983, where she was a Root-Tilden Fellow.
