There is no better venue than an ACWA conference to get the pulse of local water agency managers and directors. Between the formal panel discussions and the informal conversations throughout the week, our conferences are rich with opportunities to hear the concerns and opinions of folks on the front lines of providing water to cities and farms in California.

As the water community gathers in Anaheim next week for ACWA’s 2016 Fall Conference & Exhibition, change will be a prominent theme.
From the transition to a new federal administration to developments on key policy issues, I expect plenty of lively dialog as we take stock of the uncertainties, challenges and opportunities ahead in 2017.

You don’t have to look hard for proof that Californians are making permanent changes to the way they use water. In communities up and down the state, turf removal is a common sight as homeowners say goodbye to lawns and hello to water-wise landscapes.
Aided by hundreds of millions of dollars in rebates offered by local agencies, urban water customers are taking concrete action outdoors as well as changing out toilets and appliances indoors. These actions translate into meaningful water use reductions that can be sustained into the future.
