Bay Area Impact: Busting California's Drought for Good

This event has already occurred.

With California's April 1st snowpack at just 38% of average and severe drought covering 100% of the state's landmass, another dry winter has dashed hopes for an end to California's ongoing drought. As California buckles down for a yet another round of water restrictions, how are regional water agencies approaching drought-resilient supplies like recycled and desalinated water? Where does California stand relative to other similarly arid regions when it comes to manufacturing drought-resilient water, and what steps are needed to expand use in California? Join the Bay Area Council Webinar series for a discussion with top industry leaders in California and beyond to discuss the role of recycled and desalinated water in preparing California's economy for climate change.
