Water Summit 2023
Annual Event Returns October 25 in Sacramento
The Water Summit is the Water Education Foundation’s premier event of the year, with leading policymakers and experts addressing critical water issues in California and across the West.
This year’s event will be held Wednesday, October 25, at The Sawyer Hotel in Sacramento and includes lunch and an evening reception to network with speakers and fellow attendees.
Conversations will revolve around the theme, Taking on the Improbable in Western Water, addressing recent and ongoing changes in Western water management considered unlikely just a decade ago — and what we might expect in the near future.
Agenda details will be coming soon, so be sure to sign up for Foundation announcements here.
Now in its 39th year, the Water Summit is an ideal event for water district managers and board members, state and federal agency officials, city and county government leaders, farmers, environmentalists, attorneys, consultants, engineers, business executives and public interest groups.
