Noozhawk Asks: Information + Inspiration for Santa Barbara County

Thank you to everyone who voted in
our first Noozhawk Asks voting round.

The winning question you all chose was submitted by reader Dan Wagner: Why is Lake Cachuma not getting any more State Water, given the record snowpack? Is this water just going to the ocean?

We’re going to turn our Sam Goldman loose on the topic, and have him report back with a full story next week. And, Dan, he’ll be in touch with you to get more information. Thank you for the suggestion!

As a reminder, Noozhawk Asks is a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

We’ll launch a new voting round late next week so please keep your questions coming using the nearby Noozhawk Asks curiosity module. In the meantime, you can review your previous questions that we’ve already answered.

Thank you again.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
