San Bernardino County Water Conference
August 11, Ontario
Amidst Southern California’s growing population and demand for more water, we are faced with the harsh reality of groundwater depletion, water-quality issues, strict regulations, monumental infrastructure expenditures and few alternative sources of water. In order for businesses and residents to continue to have access to water, and our local economy to prosper, we need to explore unique ways to meet present and future water demands.
On August 11, 2017, government officials, premier water experts, business leaders and community stakeholders will attend the 11th Annual San Bernardino County Water Conference to discuss solutions to overcome California’s water challenges.
The conference enables the public to engage with business, community and civic leaders to discuss issues such as the state’s water resources, supply vs demand situation, financing and next steps in dealing with these issues.
We hope you will join us for this solution-driven event!

The Urban Water Institute will host its Annual Water Conference, being held at Hilton San Diego Resort & Spa on August 16-18, 2017 in San Diego, CA.
Second Annual California Water Data Summit

This two-day event will feature interactive panels on how big water data integration is supporting water managers in California. We’ll bring together leading water professionals from across California in order to scale these early successes for statewide impact.
