Long Beach To Host Regional Water Summit

Supervisor Don Knabe, Chairman of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, and the Southern California Water Committee are partnering together to host the Los Angeles County Water Summit on Wednesday, June 3, 2009, at the Queen Mary in the City of Long Beach.

The event, which will be held between 8:00 a.m. – 1:30 p.m., will focus on the state of water in Southern California. The summit is sponsored by the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce, Long Beach Chamber of Commerce, County of Los Angeles Department of Public Works, Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, Castaic Lake Water Agency, Central Basin Water District, County Sanitation Districts of Los Angeles County, MWH, Water Replenishment District of Southern California, West Basin Water District, and Building Industry Association of Southern California.

Make no mistake about it, we stand at a crossroads in California’s water history, said Supervisor Knabe. I am an optimist by nature so, for my part, I predict that we will step outside of the box and we will develop aggressive water conservation and recycling programs that will reshape demand in Southern California.
