Santa Rosa Basin Groundwater Advisory Panel Community Meeting

I want to let everyone know about upcoming community meetings that will address the Santa Rosa Groundwater Basin status.  Here's the blurb:

From Drought to Flash Flood Warnings in 1 Week

Northern California's driest winter on record finally saw some rain start falling last Sunday. And it's been coming down hard pretty much ever since.
