Many thanks Stacy and Owain.
I am part of a large UK Arts and Humanities project on communities and water. We have a large online community and set of resources, (bit rambling), but in there is a very long list of all sorts of books about water; also film and songs and discussions; community and arts water projects, a files section, and blog type stuff. Here is the list of books - all sorts - from academic books, popular science, history, philosophy, to poetry / some fiction. http://www.hydrocitizens.com/wiki/category/26836. Thanks editors for help on this my first comment on this forum.
Take a look at Matthew Booker's Down By The Bay: San Francisco's History Between the Tides. It has a great chapter on agriculture in the SF Bay Delta. Also, the intro to Arthur McEvoy's The Fisherman's Problem is a good way to think about marine ecosystems in CA. Maybe a chapter from Josh Howe's Behind the Curve could be useful for your climate change segment? Just some suggestions--hope they help!

I am teaching a first year undergad seminar on water. It's a broad course covering a variety of topics such as cities, disease, agriculture and so on. I would very much like to have a week or two on California and perhaps a week on climate change.
AGHBALOU - THE SOURCE OF WATER
Water is essential for food security and livelihood, especially for the millions of rural poor who rely on agriculture. AGHBALOU combines a local story of struggle with a global call to action against the growing challenge of sustaining water supplies in the face of an increasingly hostile climate.
