2022 is WELL’s 10-year anniversary, to celebrate we are hosting a conference series. The first conference will bring attention to the Central Valley region by hosting it in Selma, CA on Saturday, April 2, 2022. This year it is important to bring our attention to the Central Valley region because its communities are disproportionately affected by the economic impacts of the drought, and a lack of access to clean, affordable drinking water.
Each year we bring together leaders from across California with the aim of helping them learn best practices in water management, innovative solutions for water disparities and challenges, and how to better access financial resources that address both. Conference speakers will share their expert knowledge to help local leaders drive solutions for California’s water challenges.
Panel 1: From Water Policy to Project Implementation
Panelists will share tools to help local leaders tap into technical support resources that will allow them to bring Central Valley communities access to clean, affordable drinking water.
Panel 2: An update on SGMA and the implementation of Groundwater Sustainability Plans
Panelists will discuss the implementation of the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) and highlight how local leaders have overcome barriers to meet sustainable water usage goals.
Panel 3:The Economic Impacts of Drought and Potential Solutions for Communities
Panelists will share some of the innovative solutions local leaders are implementing to boost their economies and address water shortages.
