Erica Gies tells us what water wants
Erica Gies returns to the California Sun podcast to talk about the water crisis we face today…one of too much water in all the wrong places. Flash flooding and storms in one part of the state, massive droughts in others, climate change and a growing concrete built environment, have all impacted our plans for water control. Gies explores other options in her recent op-ed in the New York Times and in this podcast. She suggests the use of unique geologic features called paleo valleys, which could be a way for California to find a sustainable solution to an ongoing water crisis.
