Regional Water Conservation Workshops

CMUA | Tuesday, August 14th, 2018

 

 

 

 

 

Join Us for Complimentary Workshops on the Impacts of SB 606 and AB 1668

September 18th (Los Angeles) & September 21st (Sacramento)


The California Municipal Utilities Association (CMUA) is offering two regional workshops on the impacts of SB 606 and AB 1668, which were signed into law by Governor Brown on May 31, 2018, mandating water districts and municipalities enact a variety of water conservation measures.  These recently enacted laws create a new comprehensive framework that applies to both agricultural and urban water conservation and water use efficiency.  The goal is to prepare the state for the next drought and the anticipated environmental changes.  Embedded within the bills are numerous new and complex requirements for state agencies and water suppliers that will fundamentally change the local water management in the future.  These interactive workshops, which are offered free of charge to CMUA members* (non-members pay $50 per person), will provide the tools your agency needs to understand and implement these changes.

Each workshop will feature panel presentations with industry experts, state agency personnel, and water utility representatives.  More details on each workshop are listed below along with a link to register.  Please be sure to check the date and location of the workshop you are interested in attending on the registration page.  If you have any questions about the workshop, please contact Danielle Blacet at (916) 326-5802 or dblacet@cmua.org.

 

Seats are limited so register today!  

*This event is open to all CMUA member utilities, Associate Members, and non-member utilities.  Registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis.  Registration is complimentary for CMUA utility and Associate members.  Non-members pay $50 per person.
