Rain today, gone tomorrow? Droughts in California are expected to occur three out of every 10 years. And what happens in California does not stay in California. Without proper planning and investment in water infrastructure and policy, California's $1.9 trillion economy can come to a stand still, having devastating ripple effects on U.S. and global markets. Join us for the 8th Annual Orange County Water Summit to set imagination, innovation and investment into motion to keep water flowing.
