National Clean Water Law Seminar

San Diego, CA | November 14-16, 2018

A Seminar focused specifically on the legal and regulatory challenges facing the municipal clean water community.

Join us in San Diego for the National Clean Water Law Seminar. San Diego will serve as the perfect backdrop for a discussion of emerging legal and enforcement trends impacting the clean water sector. With its perfect sandy beaches, 147 days of sunshine annually, and arid Mediterranean-like climate receiving only 10 inches of rain per year, water is an essential and scarce resource in the San Diego region. What better place to focus on critical topics like water reuse, in a region where recycled water has been used for golf course and landscape irrigation since 1961. Clean water attorneys and professionals, and utility leaders and managers can stay classy while coming together to address critical legal and regulatory issues impacting clean water utilities, helping utilities to develop solutions for today’s legal challenges and make the entire sector stronger and more prepared for a resilient, water rich future. Even Ron Burgundy agrees - it’s kind of a big deal.
