A message from the new Urban Water Institute Chairman, Lisa Ohlund:

 

The theme for this conference is “Water: The Future is Now.”  Catchy title, but what does it mean?  It means that the planning committee has worked to assemble the best cutting edge and out-of-the-box topics that have not been touched upon.  We also threw in some current discussion about budget-based water rates, fracking, watershed management and Salton Sea geothermal in case the other topics don’t intrigue you.  Potable Reuse?  Fran Spivy-Weber, Vice-Chair of the State Water Resources Control Board, has something to say about this, as does the National Water Research Institute’s 2013 Clarke Prize recipient Dr. Rhodes Trussell.  Futuristic Watershed Management?  It’s being done today in California’s Mountain Counties and John Kingsbury of the Mountain Counties Resources Association has assembled a great panel, including two University of California Ph.D.s, to spell out how it’s done.  And we have a veritable who’s who from the private sector on cutting edge technology, so big we needed TWO panels, all moderated by Roy Wolfe, Business and Technology Manager at MET.

 

This isn’t a large gathering, about 200 attendees, but the format and the intimacy make for meeting people and starting conversations and perhaps you will even meet the next Bill Mulholland or Pat Mulroy.  We stand on the shoulders of giants…now come and meet one and say “thank you.”

 

Join us on Thursday as we present the Lifetime Achievement Award to Pat Mulroy!
