In California, several key issues have prompted an immediate need to pinpoint and address critical water issues that are affecting the State's wellness and safety, as well as the ability to deliver quality, reliable water supplies that contribute to the health and heft of our economy. Collaboration between science, natural resource agencies, farmers, businesses, and policymakers is vital to California's future.

Water industry professionals today have another challenge as stories across every possible news platform from newspaper to news radio, television, blog posts, and social media, are a mixed bag of water supply issues and water quality challenges. It seems that water is making headlines almost nightly, both through trusted media, and across thousands of personal social media "news feeds."

Thank you to the approximately 350 people who attended the 13th annual OC Water Summit on October 15, 2021. Please save the date for the 14th annual OC Water Summit on September 16, 2022 at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa in Anaheim. Check back in March 2022 for more information.
