Golf Courses, the Environment and Water Conservation: The New Reality (San Francisco)
June 8, 5:30pm
While some people may think of the golf industry as one of waste and excess, recent climate changes and resources have required golf course operators to rethink their strategy when it comes to golfing, natural resources and adjustments for changing golf courses and game environments. Join the operations team from the Presidio Golf Course as they discuss water conservation, sustainable environmental improvements and the model the Presidio Golf Course has created for current and future golfers, environments and the golfing industry.
O. C. Water Summit: Finding Water (Anaheim)
June 16, 7:30am to 1:30 pm
The 2016-2017 water year will mark California’s sixth straight year of drought. Water agencies in Orange County and throughout Southern California can no longer rely on Mother Nature to meet current or future water needs. Protecting and maximizing what we have are critical parts of water management.
Equally important is finding new water supplies. Where do we look to find water? How much will it cost and will consumers be willing to pay the price?
Join nearly 400 business and community leaders, elected officials, professors, and water experts for the 10th Annual OC Water Summit to find solutions to local, state, national, and international water challenges.
We have the framework. Now what? A symposium on statewide water conservation (Montclair)
June 29, 8am to 3pm
Although the state-mandated drought regulations have been lifted, new legislation has immediate implications for water agencies statewide. Join us for an engaging, informative discussion of the next steps for water professionals in Making Water Conservation a Way of Life.
- Framework Fundamentals – Implementing the Governor’s Executive Order
- Equity & Enforcement – Fairness Among California’s Water Providers
- Water Use Efficiency Targets – Integrating Conservation with Resilient Water Management
- Conservation & Agriculture – Balancing Producers, Planners & Partners
Governor Brown’s conservation framework has major implications for water providers statewide. Nowhere is that more pressing than in the Inland Empire. Join the discussion at this special conservation symposium, which will focus on the unique challenges facing water agencies and their customers and stakeholders. Maven, Ms. Chris Austin, author of the popular Maven’s Notebook, has agreed to help moderate the compelling dialogue.
