DWR's Worst Case Scenario at Play
     
Let's say...You manage the State's water resources. The dreaded 7.2 earthquake suddenly hits the Bay Area...crippling critical water infrastructure...in the middle of an epic drought. What do you do?
The Department of Water Resources tackled just that very scenario during the Delta Emergency Response Tabletop Exercise. Brass from across all Divisions including Executive, Flood Management, Engineering, Statewide Integrated Regional Water Management, Operations and Maintenance, Safety of Dams and Environmental Services came together to test how they'll respond, recover and continue to serve the more than 25 million Californians who rely upon DWR's State Water Project.
