Even as some water agencies in Northern California relax water conservation mandates for their customers after a wet winter, the state is still facing a water crisis. Infrastructure and water supplies are severely threatened, and state lawmakers approved an $11 billion water bond to go before voters in November.

Orange County residents, businesses and community leaders are invited to engage with water utilities and legislators on possible remedies, long-term solutions and the pros and cons of the water bond at the 3rd Annual O.C. Water Summit, 7:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., May 14, at the Grand Californian Hotel at Disneyland Resort (Anaheim).

Presented by Orange County Water District, Municipal Water District of Orange County, Disneyland Resort and Siemens Water Technologies, the O.C. Water Summit brings together experts from across the country and Southern California business professionals, water industry stakeholders, elected officials, community leaders and environmentalists to discuss ongoing state water issues and how water supply challenges impact the economy.

Featured speakers include Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez; Paul Rodriguez, actor, comedian and chair of California Latino Water Coalition; authors/economists Steve Solomon and Joel Kotkin; and documentary film director and producer James Thebaut.
