Participants had an opportunity to learn from top experts at our popular Water 101 Workshop in the Sacramento area, held on February 4-5, 2016. This daylong workshop with an optional second, half-day offered the opportunity to learn about California water basics, hot topics and water district board member governance.
The 1-1/2 day “Integrated Regional Water Management 2.0: The Next Generation” was held May 21-22 2015 in San Diego. The conference was cosponsored by the California Department of Water Resources and the Water Education Foundation in partnership with the Roundtable of Regions.

In cooperation with Center for Irrigation Technology at Fresno State
Water year 2015 follows the record-dry three-year period of 2012-2014. Last year’s severely dry hydrology resulted in water allocation cutbacks to State Water Project and federal Central Valley Project contractors. As we approach the end of 2015’s rainy season hydrologic conditions are better than last year, but drought impacts remain.
This day-and-a-half course, typically offered once a year in Northern California, offered the opportunity to learn the California water basics, hot topics and water district board member governance.
Water 101 is open to anyone interested in learning more about the history of and the management structure of water in California, and about the key water issues facing the state – including the ongoing drought, the new groundwater law and the 2014 water bond.
The SoCal Water 101, sponsored by the Water Education Foundation, was held October 2-3, 2014 at the Cucamonga Valley Water District’s Frontier Project in Rancho Cucamonga. This day-and-a-half course was designed for anyone interested in learning more about the history of and the management structure of water in California, and about the key water issues facing the state. There was an optional afternoon tour of the district’s nearby Lloyd W. Michael Water Treatment Plant on October 3.
This free workshop was held February 13, 2014 at the West Sacramento Civic Center.
At this one-day workshop, scientists from federal, state and local agencies discussed the research on climate change and how it will impact the resources, agricultural enterprises, businesses and residents in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. Among topics to be discussed:
Water 101, sponsored by the Water Education Foundation was held February 18-19, 2014, on the UC Davis campus. This day and a half course was designed for anyone interested in learning more about the history of and the management structure of water in California, and about the key water issues facing the state. The course is especially beneficial to water resource industry staff, engineering and environmental firm personnel, legislators, legislative staff, press, advocates, stakeholders, environmentalists, public interest organizations and water district directors.
Convened by the Santa Ana Watershed Project Authority (SAWPA) and coordinated by the Water Education Foundation, this conference was held April 11 at the Westin South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa and featured a range of presentations aimed at encouraging regional players to work together to tackle the industry’s most pressing issues.
The Integrated Water Management Summit in Sacramento on April 3 provided a unique opportunity to build understanding about California’s commitment to improve public safety, foster environmental stewardship, and support economic stability using a holistic approach.

Integrated Regional Water Management is a collaborative effort to manage all aspects of water resources in a region. This event brought representatives from water and flood management agencies, city and county governments, environmental protection, business, technology, and academia together for an in-depth conversation about advancing IRWM in California.
On September 27-28, 2012, a special remote sensing workshop was held in San Diego to bring technical experts, academics and water policy leaders together to learn about this technology’s potential water management benefits. The workshop was sponsored by Environmental Defense Fund, NASA, the California Water Foundation and the Water Education Foundation.
Santa Ana River Watershed 2012: Implementing the Vision discussed the importance of the Santa Ana River Watershed and how we will implement plans to improve the quality and reliability of our water supply. This was a working conference with audience feedback.
The purpose of this day-and-a-half workshop was to provide water managers on both sides of the border with an overview of remote sensing data and tools that could be applied to binational water management issues, building on experience gained from NASA’s recent research project (funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009) to demonstrate potential use of existing remote sensing data sets for water resources applications in California.
