A Better Approach to Water Supply

For the first time ever, CCEEB is holding special seminar open to the public and all interested stakeholders on water quality and water supply issues.  The seminar builds on CCEEB’s work in the areas of storm water, ground water, recycled water, conservation, regional basin plans, and multiple benefit projects developed through public-private partnerships, bringing together top experts in for in-depth, interactive discussions with seminar attendees. The water seminar will also explore opportunities for different groups to collaborate on sustainable solutions to water supply and to help prioritize water quality objectives at the state and regional water boards.
