It’s not too late to register for the ACEC California Annual Conference to be held October 10-11, 2017 at the Hyatt Regency, Lake Tahoe. Last week a new session and new speakers were added to the conference agenda.

Jim Davis, Caltrans Division Chief of Project Management, Esther Morris, P.E. Assistant Division Chief DPAC, A&E Office and Dan Purvine, President A/E Clarity will be panelists.

Proposition 1 was passed by the people of California in 2014.  $2.7 Billion of the $7.545 Billion of spending authorized by the legislation is specifically set aside for water storage projects. Two of the most well-known projects that will be contending for Proposition 1 funding are Temperance Flat Dam and Los Vaqueros Reservoir. Shana Kaplan, Deputy Planning Officer, U. S. Bureau of Reclamation will be moderating the water panel and Mario Santoyo, San Joaquin Valley Water Infrastructure from Temperance Flat and Marguerite Patil, Contra Costa Water District from Los Vaqueros Reservoir will be panelists.
