SAN DIEGO, Calif., Oct. 21, 2002 -- In a period of extreme draught, the issues of water allocation rights, sustainability and ecosystem protection must be examined.

With this in mind, UCSD Extension's Business and Professional Development Program will present a timely and informational filled seminar, "Watershed Management Planning" on Friday, Nov. 15, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Handlery Hotel in Mission Valley, Calif.

Watershed management has become an issue of critical importance in Southern California dramatically affecting the coastline and its families, schools, farms and businesses.

Protecting our rivers and streams and ensuring a safe and adequate water supply requires the collaboration and expertise of professionals across many disciplines, including engineers, planners, policy analysts, and environmental specialists. Only through consensus building and forward thinking will an effective plan be developed and implemented.

In this one-day seminar, the following agenda items will be discussed: defining watershed management planning, identifying Southern California's major watersheds, improving planning processes, and a multi-perspective panel discussion and Q&A forum. Lunch will be served followed by break-out sessions on strategic watershed planning from social, environmental, and economic points of view and will conclude by giving you information on how to get involved.

Moderator Teresa Brownyard has worked for the County of San Diego Department of Environmental Health for nearly 12 years. She has worked diligently in many program areas including hazardous materials management, household toxics, and storm water management. Currently she is the project manager for Project Clean Water, which was initiated by the County Board of Supervisors in July 2000. Teresa has also served as adjunct faculty at Cuyamaca Community College where she taught the Hazardous Waste Technology course, and she received her Professional Certificate in Hazardous Materials Management from UCSD Extension.

The fee for this one-day event is $125. For registration, directions or any additional inquiries about this program contact Jill Berner at 858/882-8011 or e-mail [email protected].
