Friday, October 1, 2004
Some of California’s top scientists will be attending the event at the Convention Center. Johnnie More, lead scientist with the California Bay-Delta Authority, says they have a full agenda. Topics from mercury contamination, future of inland fishes, the effects of sea level rise and seizmicty on levees. Among those topics, protecting fish from mercury contamination is at the forefront. Certainly that’s definitely one because mercury is such a broad issue in the state. Moore says one of the Bay Delta Program’s goals is to improve scientific basis for water policy in California. The 3-day conference ends Wednesday. Steve Milne - KXJZ news.
