California, the country’s most populated state, is in the midst of a three-year drought that may prove to be one of the most severe in its history. It’s a constant challenge to manage water supplies across the state’s urban, environmental, and agricultural sectors.
Jeanine Jones, the Interstate Resources Manager for the California Department of Water Resources, was appointed Deputy Drought Manager this winter to help the state deal with ongoing drought conditions. A 30-year Department of Water Resources veteran, Jones has participated in interstate water negotiations and managed various planning and climate change adaptation programs.
