Public Forum About Local Water Scheduled

The Water Association of Kern County has scheduled a workshop to better explain local water issues and statewide drought regulations to the public.

Beth Pandol is the executive director of the agency and says it’s crucial to start a discussion about water, how it gets to Kern County and its politics.

“We’d like those who, maybe, aren’t invoved in farming and not involved in the water industry to learn a little bit more now, and to learn why we’re in this situation,” she said.

The event on June 15 is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. at the Kern County Board of Supervisors’ chambers on Truxtun Avenue in downtown Bakersfield.
