California Water Policy Conference 22
April 18 & 19, 2013
Crowne Plaza Hotel, Los Angeles Airport
For this year the California Water Policy Conference Planning Committee has developed a stimulating conference agenda that will take the leading water issues of the day head-on.
The first day of the conference concludes with a conversation intended to be a free-ranging dialog on tough questions – The State of California Water Management: Making Progress or Running in Place? Issues to be discussed will include:
* Will new in-Delta conveyance run out of customers before it runs out of water?
* Can “ecosystem goods and services” be converted to dollars, or do we need a new currency?
* Is it time to define the “carrying capacity” of California’s limited resources?
* Does water have a zip code, or is it a resource for the entire state?
We’ve invited three dynamic participants well versed in California water policy issues: Sunne Wright McPeak, President and CEO, California Emerging Technology Fund, Linda Sheehan, Executive Director, Earth Law Center, and Martha Davis, Executive Manager Policy Development, Inland Empire Utilities Agency. Mark Horne, Senior Consultant, Cardno ENTRIX will facilitate the conversation, which is sure to provide plenty of food for thought for the “environmental adjustment hour” that follows. If you’ve ever wanted to hear a frank discussion about the emperor’s clothes AND the elephant in the room, don’t miss this session.
