 Top city and water agency officials will address California's historical drought, including its anticipated impact and water supply actions, during the World Ag Expo Water Forum.

The event will be held on the Thursday of World Ag Expo, Feb. 13, from 12:30 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. at the International Agri-Center's Heritage Complex, 4500 South Laspina St., Tulare, Calif.

State and federal water representatives will participate. Governor Brown and Resources Secretary John Laird are invited. The master of ceremonies will be KMPH-TV News Anchor Rich Rodriguez.

As California faces the worst drought in decades, the Central Valley will once again be ground zero for water supply shortages and economic impacts due to the combination of lack of rain, snow, low reservoir levels, major declines in its groundwater levels and the ongoing shifting of its reliable water supplies to the environment.

City officials and farmers will discuss concerns, challenges, and ask for help from state and federal water departments through a panel moderated by Mario Santoyo of the California Latino Water Coalition.

The World Ag Expo Water Forum will also include high level policy and technical representatives from state and federal governments, plus key water agencies to discuss and answer questions through a panel moderated by Tim Quinn of the Association of California Water Agencies.

Time will be available for audience questions.
