State Archives Speaker Series: Tim Stroshane to Discuss Drought, Water Law, and the Origins of California's Central Valley Project


The California State Archives Speaker Series continues Thursday, May 18, with author Tim Stroshane. He will discuss how drought and legal conflict shaped statewide economic development and how the grand bargain of a San Joaquin River water exchange was struck from this monopoly legacy, setting the stage for future water wars. Stroshane authored a book on this subject: Drought, Water Law, and the Origins of California's Central Valley Project. 

Tim Stroshane received his MA in city planning from the University of California, Berkeley. An independent scholar who has studied the water, economy, and environment of California since 1980, he has worked professionally in environmental consulting, for the city of Berkeley in housing economics and policy, and most recently with environmental non-profit organizations focused on California and its Bay-Delta Estuary. 

The speaker series is sponsored by the Friends of the State Archives.  

This is a free, but ticketed event. 


The event is open to media, but an RSVP is strongly recommended.
