The Best Defense to Drought is Water Supply

When: Oct 15, 2021 11:45 AM ET
Where: Virtual


Forty-two percent of California is experiencing drought and reservoirs are at historic lows. While Orange County is well prepared for dry conditions, it still must battle with decreased water allocations. Yet, the state has not invested in large scale water infrastructure in decades. Why? What challenges stand in the way? A panel of experts will lay it all on the table as they debate California’s best course of action to sustainably increase its water supply.

About the conference:

In California, several key issues have prompted an immediate need to pinpoint and address critical water issues that are affecting the State’s wellness and safety, as well as the ability to deliver quality, reliable water supplies that contribute to the health and heft of our economy. Collaboration between science, natural resource agencies, farmers, businesses, and policymakers is vital to California’s future.

Water industry professionals today have another challenge as stories across every possible news platform from newspaper to news radio, television, blog posts, and social media, are a mixed bag of water supply issues and water quality challenges. It seems that water is making headlines almost nightly, both through trusted media, and across thousands of personal social media “news feeds.”

Join nearly 400 business professionals, elected officials, water industry experts, and scholars for the 2021 OC Water Summit, “Water Breaking News” on Friday, October 15 at Disney’s Grand Californian Resort & Spa, as we focus on the many water stories making headlines.
