He has served as Executive Director of Public Officials for Water and Environmental Reform in CA since 1992, which sponsored the California Water Policy Conference for over twenty years. Since 1998 he has been President of the American River Watershed Institute, project manager for the EPA-funded project that developed the Sierra Climate Change Watershed Yield Calculator, now project manager for the Save Bear River fight to Stop Centennial Dam on the Bear River.
