In the Wild

Madison Jarvis at the CA Air Resources Board

March 15, 2019

I recently started working as an Air Resources Technician with the California Air Resources Board’s (CARB) Enforcement Division. In this position, I assist staff in identifying and addressing non-compliant vehicles in accordance with the California Truck and Bus Regulation. I spend a lot of time shadowing and assisting Air Pollution Specialists and learning about how air quality regulations are implemented and enforced.

The project increased my understanding of current political and structural dynamics in water management and policy. The process of writing and revising the white paper focused my ability to discern what is relevant to a policy audience. As I developed recommendations, the draft and review process with Michael George and Dr. Lund produced a more pertinent and accessible document. Through my participation in meetings and workshops, my network has grown, and I have recently been asked to review a section of the 2018 Draft Delta Science Plan Update.
