These are pivotal times in the water industry. Drought is once again
ravaging the west and decrees to conserve are upon us. Meanwhile, critical
infrastructure projects that could enhance supply and reliability for the
state are still years from breaking ground. Climate change, rising
population, and more stringent regulations are crippling California's
existing water system, which has not been upgraded since the '60s. Now more
than ever before, water managers, policymakers, agriculture, and business
need to work together to build projects that will keep the water flowing
for generations to come.
World-renowned experts, prominent authors and distinguished speakers
delivered presentations and discussed these topics at the 14th Annual
Orange County Water Summit on Friday, September 16 at Disneyland's
Grand Californian Hotel & Spa.
