The 2019 Santa Ana Watershed Conference, Moving Forward Together: From Planning to Action Across the Watershed, will feature topics key to the watershed that winds through San Bernardino, Riverside and Orange counties.
Participants at the daylong conference on March 29, 2019 at Cal State Fullerton’s Titan Student Union will hear about the importance of the Santa Ana River Watershed and how, through powerful partnerships and integrated planning, the region is finding resilient solutions to improve the quality and reliability of the local water supply for all in the watershed.
Ellen Hanak of the Public Policy Institute of California will moderate a panel featuring the top water managers from SAWPA’s member agencies who will discuss the region’s latest innovations and what the next generation of integrated water management planning looks like.
Keynote speaker Tim Moore will discuss “Choosing Statesmanship over Brinkmanship” during lunch.
The conference is convened by the Santa Ana Watershed Project Authority (SAWPA), and supported in part by SAWPA’s member agencies and coordinated by the Water Education Foundation.
SAWPA was an early champion of the One Water One Watershed – OWOW – concept and built it into an innovative and integrated planning process being implemented in the watershed. Click here to see the latest plan.
