Register for the
2015 OC Water Summit
Rain today, gone tomorrow? Droughts in California are expected to occur three out of every 10 years. Without proper planning and investment in water infrastructure and policy, California's $1.9 trillion economy can come to a standstill, having devastating ripple effects on U.S. and global markets. Join us for the 8th Annual Orange County Water Summit on May 15 from 7:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. to set imagination, innovation and investment into motion to keep water flowing.

The annual OC Water Summit will take place, this year, at the Grand Californian Hotel at the Disneyland Resort.

Programs feature national and global economic impacts of California's drought, ocean desalination, the city of the future, a close-up look at three California cities and their responses to water challenges, and inspirational stories of innovation.

Speakers include Janice Stillman, editor, The Old Farmer's Almanac; Roger Patterson, assistant general manager, Metropolitan Water District of Southern California; John Chandler of Chandler Farms; Paul Parreira of RPAC; and moderator Tom Pankratz, editor, Water Desalination Report, Global Water Intelligence.

The event draws more than 400 prominent national and state policy makers, elected officials, scientists, financial experts and business leaders. They gather to discuss the past and present of California's water supplies and delivery systems and learn about plans to secure California's water future. The OC Water Summit is hosted by the Orange County Water District, Disneyland Resort and the Municipal Water District of Orange County.
