The 2019 Water Summit, our annual premier event, was held October 30, 2019 at a new location along the Sacramento River in downtown Sacramento. Now in its 36th year, the Water Summit featured top policymakers and leading stakeholders providing the latest information and viewpoints on issues impacting water across California and the West.
As major deadlines loom in California for the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act and voluntary settlement agreements involving rivers that lead to the Delta, the theme for this year’s summit was Water Year 2020: A Year of Reckoning.

Beyond these regulatory updates, water managers and stakeholders are dealing with a “new normal” as unprecedented episodes of drought, flooding and wildfire challenge the status quo and demand improved approaches. This year’s theme reflected the upcoming transitions, as well as ongoing efforts to improve water management and policy.
At the summit, attendees had the opportunity to network with a variety of stakeholders, including water district managers and board members, state and federal agency officials and regulators, city and county government officials, farmers, environmentalists, attorneys, consultants, engineers, business executives and public interest groups.
