The drought emergency is affecting every city in California.
 
The League of California Cities Annual Conference & Expo works to address issues that are current and relevant to attendees, and the drought crisis is no exception.
 
Make room in your conference schedule for this beneficial and relevant session, “Drought: Statewide Perspective and Lessons Learned.”
 
Water year 2014 is one of the driest years on record in California’s major watersheds. Gov. Jerry Brown has proclaimed a statewide drought emergency and called for Californians to reduce their water usage by 20 percent. A brief overview of drought conditions, response actions and prospects for water year 2015 will be provided from the statewide perspective. At the local level, city water managers will discuss challenges faced, actions taken to respond to dry conditions, and lessons learned. Cities must be prepared in the event that drought conditions persist in water year 2015.
 
Jeanine Jones, interstate resources manager for the Department of Water Resources is moderating and speaking for this session.
 
Additional speakers include:
  • Jon Curry, Tehachapi public works director
  • Toby Goddard, Santa Cruz administrative services manager
  • Kevin L. Wattier, Long Beach Water Department general manager
