    PASADENA, CA, February 06, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- This week in Sacramento a drought bill known as H.R. 3964 is up for a vote. "The Sacramento-San Joaquin Valley Emergency Water Delivery Act" is authored by Representative David Valadao of Hanford (R-CA21), and seeks to loosen some restrictions and provide more water to farmers in the Central Valley, some say at the expense of the San Joaquin River Restoration Program. In the midst of an historic drought, and what Governor Jerry Brown has declared a drought emergency, Californians more than ever need to understand all aspects our most precious resource and where we get it. The San Marino Historical Society and Crowell Public Library invite one and all to hear Debra Man address this topic in depth at the Library, Monday, February 24, at 7:00 p.m.

Debra Man is the Chief Operating Officer of the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California and a San Marino resident. She will explain the history of the Delta, how it impacted California during the Gold Rush, what has happened to it since, and what is needed to keep it as an asset for California's future as the state struggles with the least amount of rainfall in its 163-year history. Resolving the existing conflicts in the Delta between water supply and environmental needs will significantly improve the water supply reliability for all water users that rely on water from the Delta which includes San Marino.

This program is free and open to the public. It will take place in the Library's Barth Community Room.

Two books, San Marino: A Centennial History by Elizabeth Pomeroy and The Story of Michael White, a California Rebel Pioneer by Dorothy Jenkins Ross will be available for purchase from the Historical Society.
