American River South Fork


April 12-13, 2007

The American River Watershed Conference will be held at the University Union Building on the campus of California State University, Sacramento (CSUS) in conjuction with the Local Government Commission and the California Extreme Precipitation Symposium.

The American River is a unique resource of the Sacramento Region, making important contributions to the economy, environment and recreation. It is the most heavily used recreational river in California, and many public and private agencies are concerned with its welfare. Factors affecting the health of the river include increased flood control requirements, population growth, climate change, rising pressure on water use, changing recreation patterns and new understanding of aquatic ecosystems and resources.

This year, the American River Watershed Conference is pleased to partner with the Local Government Commission in hosting a workshop on the Ahwahnee Water Principles that will run parallel to our conference.

The California Extreme Precipitation Symposium will hold its 13th Annual Conference on Friday, April 13, 2007, in partnership with other sessions.
