Agenda Posted for Sept. 20 Water Summit; Only a Few Tickets Left!
Speakers include Bureau of Reclamation Commissioner Brenda Burman, DWR Director Karla Nemeth and State Water Board Chair Felicia Marcus
A diverse roster of top policymakers and water experts are on the agenda for the Foundation’s 35th annual Water Summit. The day-long conference, Facing Reality from the Headwaters to the Delta, will feature critical conversations about water in California and the West.
Climate scientist Daniel Swain will be the opening keynote speaker addressing drought, flood and wildfires amid increasing climate whiplash and what it means for water management. Reclamation Commissioner Brenda Burman will give the keynote lunch address. See the full roster of speakers here.
Panelists include regulators, policymakers and representatives from a variety of stakeholder groups discussing the increased threats to California’s headwaters, the state’s controversial flows plan for the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta and challenges to meeting California’s ambitious policy declaring a human right to water. Each panel will include organizations working on solutions and pilot projects.
In addition, we host a silent auction benefiting the Foundation’s Water Leaders program. More than 40 items – including lunches with key people in the water world, helicopter and canoe rides and two-day getaways – will be up for grabs.
