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.
