057: Groundwater Governance with Bill Blomquist

In this episode, Courtney speaks with Bill Blomquist, a Professor of Political Science at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) and a fellow at the Ostrom Workshop. We explore Bill’s ground-breaking and decade-spanning research into California groundwater governance. We talk about Bill’s work tracking the evolution of groundwater policy and institutions, the unique theoretical insights we can learn about natural resource governance from California’s most recent groundwater experiment, the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act, and finally we end with some reflections on Bill’s time working with the Ostrom Workshop.
