Bankhead hosting discussion on state's water situation

Speaker is UC Berkeley professor, heads Water Security & Sustainability Initiative

Livermore's Bankhead Theater is set to host a presentation this Thursday at 7:30 p.m. by Roger Bales from the University of California at Merced, discussing what was learned from the 2011-15 drought and what steps need to be taken to secure the state's water future.

Bales, a professor and director of the UC Water Security and Sustainability Research Initiative, focuses professionally on California's effort to build the knowledge base and implement policies that adapt our water supplies, critical ecosystems and economy to the impacts of climate warming.

He works with leaders in state agencies, elected officials, federal land managers, water leaders, non-governmental organizations, and other key decision makers on developing climate solutions for California.

The presentation is part of the Rae Dorough Speaker Series. Tickets for Thursday's talk are $16 for students and range from $32 to $40 for adults. Purchase online at or visit the theater box office in downtown Livermore.
