UCCE's Laurence Costello and Janet Hartin were appointed to the task force along with 28 members representing CDWR, the California State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB), the California Bay Delta Authority, the U.S.
AB 1881 required CDWR to update MWELO by enacting many of the recommendations from the AB 2717 task force.
Between 2003 and 2015, UC received CDWR funding to conduct two studies to further refine provisions within AB 1881.
The primacy of local control is also a recurring theme in the first comprehensive report on groundwater to be issued by the CDWR since 1980 (California Department of Water Resources, 2003).
The demand for groundwater has been increasing due to the increased acreage of intensively grown crops, large-scale conversion of rangeland and field crops to permanent crops and uncertainty about water deliveries from the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, the heart of California's elaborate surface water conveyance system (CDWR 2014b).
Greater reliance on groundwater during the drought has caused land subsidence on a large scale in the Central Valley (in some cases more than 12 inches of subsidence in 2014 alone), coastal basins and Southern California; it has also exacerbated seawater intrusion where pumping occurs in aquifers near the coast (CDWR 2014c).

METHODS: We mapped 577 residences and used the CPUR and CDWR data to compute two exposure metrics based on putative pesticide use within a 500-m buffer.
The CPUR metric estimates of pesticide use within 500 m were significantly higher than the CDWR metric for all six pesticides.
We used three datasets: the CPUR pesticide database (CDPR 2000), crop maps from the California Department of Water Resources (CDWR), and residence locations from a childhood cancer study conducted by the California Department of Health Services (CDHS).
"This is a significant step toward definitive long-term contracts between Duke Energy and CDWR," said Bill Hall, head of the company's California operations.
