The Department of Water Resources (DWR) is responsible for managing and protecting California’s water. DWR works with other agencies to benefit the state’s people, and to protect, restore and enhance the natural and human environments.


DWR Environmental Scientists Make a Difference

More than 200 DWR Environmental Scientists gathered in Sacramento in October for the Department’s 22nd Annual Environmental Scientist Workshop. Highlighted were the many individuals and programs that help DWR to protect, restore, and enhance California’s natural and human environments while managing the state’s water resources. The annual gathering allows environmental scientists to exchange lessons learned on projects such as the Clifton Court Forebay Predator Study, Feather River Salmonid Spawning Gravel Project and Suisun Marsh Tidal Restoration project as well as to hear outstanding speakers on habitat restoration and myriad other subjects.
