Metropolitan to host technical conference on groundwater, recycled water, seawater desalination, and stormwater pilot studies
February 23 from 9:30am to 3:30pm
In 2013, Metropolitan’s Board approved a pilot Foundational Actions Funding (FAF) Program that consisted of technical studies and pilot projects pertaining to the areas of groundwater, recycled water, seawater desalination, and stormwater. Foundational Actions, now referred to as Future Supply Actions, are relatively low-cost, low risk preliminary actions to better prepare the region for unforeseen water supply challenges. These actions allow us to develop cost-effective solutions in time of need.
On February 23, 2017, Metropolitan will be hosting a Technical Conference that will showcase all projects that participated in the FAF Program.
