In 1969, the Cuyahoga River caught on fire for the thirteenth time. This event catalyzed a decade of environmental legislation in the U.S. including the National Environmental Policy Act, the Clean Water Act, and the Endangered Species Act. How do water-quality and natural resource agency staff balance development and the natural environment through regulatory actions? This seminar will highlight how environmental regulatory decisions are made and the kinds of science that regulators use to guide decision-making at the local and regional level in the Bay Area. Working in environmental regulation is an exciting option for biologists, ecologists, physical scientists, and other water-resource professionals who want to use technical skills and scientific expertise to have a real-world impact.
Speaker: Sahyre Cohen, UC Army Corp of Engineers
