A public forum on Pilarcitos

The Pilarcitos Creek watershed isn’t all that large, but it drains the western slope of the foothills from Skyline to Half Moon Bay, and thus brings quite a lot of water to the Pacific.

The debate about appropriate use of all this water has been going on for more than 140 years. Today its management involves a huge number of public agencies as well as private nonprofits (CGF among them), and the issues – like the water – can get quite muddy.

As a step toward working this all out, CGF and 17 other groups are sponsoring a public forum on restoring the Pilarcitos Creek Watershed. The Half Moon Bay Water Summit will invoke a watershed approach for balancing the competing demands for water in this area.

The forum’s next Thursday, April 28 from 9-4pm at the I.D.E.S. Hall in Half Moon Bay.

Admission is free, but pre-registation is required if you want to get in on the complimentary lunch.

For more info call 650-712-7765 or get the details on the CGF calendar.
