Get Informed. Get Connected.

ACWA’s legislative symposium has been an annual event engaging water district directors, general managers, attorneys, and staff from across California with up-to-date information on critical water policy issues.

The program will start at 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. followed by a networking reception from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Topics of Discussion

Infrastructure Permitting

As the wets get wetter and dries get drier, we must identify opportunities to streamline the regulatory permitting process so that critical infrastructure projects are built at the pace and scale needed to prepare for climate change. This panel will discuss ACWA’s sponsored bill, SB 23 (Caballero), which intends to expedite the permitting process for water supply and flood risk reduction projects.

Infrastructure Funding

Adapting to California’s changing climate will take a generational investment in water infrastructure. This not only includes creating more above and below-ground storage, but also diversifying water supplies through desalination and recycling, as well as improving flood protection and dam safety. This panel will focus on infrastructure investment, where funding might come from, and how it should be spent.
