In a presentation to AquAlliance's 2012 Water Conference in Chico, California, Senior Economist Ed MacMullan will address how economics helped inform public-trust balancing in the Mono Lake Decision. The conference, Water for Seven Generations: Will California Prepare For It?, is also sponsored by California Sportfishing Protection Alliance (CSPA), California Water Impact Network (C-WIN), the Rose Foundation, Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Ed MacMullan is a nationally recognized expert on ecosystem services and the economic aspects of public policy decisions, particularly those affecting the use and allocation of water resources. Ed helps regulators, decisionmakers, and stakeholders at the local, state and national level understand the economic aspects of water management. In his project work and alongside other staff at ECONorthwest, he describes the economic consequences on values of ecosystem services of developing areas prone to landslides and other hazards. He also studies the economic factors associated with avoiding and complying with regional water quality regulations and county permitting processes.
