ACWA members gathered once again in Visalia for our Regions 6 & 7 San Joaquin Valley Water Forum on Oct. 17. More than 120 water industry experts and leaders from throughout the San Joaquin Valley were in attendance, eager to hear about the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act and from their local representatives in the Capitol.
ACWA President John Coleman and Vice President Kathy Tiegs kicked off the program with an update on what ACWA has been working on and activities and events to come.

ACWA and its member agencies have a long history of leadership when it comes to confronting big changes in the way we manage water resources in California. Comprehensive groundwater legislation currently awaiting the governor’s signature is the latest example.
Few issues are as complex and controversial as groundwater, and the three-bill package that won final approval in the Legislature Aug. 29 is without question one of the most complicated and difficult set of policy reforms this generation of water managers has attempted to pursue.

I am proud to be the vice president of an organization whose statewide message represents public water agencies throughout all of California. Wrapping up ACWA’s Member Appreciation Month, I’ve written a poem to express my gratitude for all that our members do and accomplish together.
