Public universities in California could have a key role to play in helping the state resolve its water issues. There are a number of water research institutes within the California State University system, and they have been involved with various projects. For example, the Center for Geographical Studies at Cal State Northridge helped map wetlands in the state. "To my knowledge, this is the largest effort in Southern California in mapping the wetlands," said Patricia Pendleton, the project administrator for the center.
