    Join us for our next webinar on December 6, 2021.
    This highly informative session will cover varying perspectives on a myriad of water issues. We will hear the State Water Board’s view on water supply, accessibility and sustainability, and how they view emergency damage control such as water system extensions and hauling. We will hear from a LAFCo Commissioner (and also County Supervisor) from the central valley and get some local context of SGMA, including a case study and insights on what LAFCos can do in terms of dealing with these difficult issues. We will also hear about a case study currently playing out from a northern region LAFCo Executive Officer that involves a community water system in drought crisis, and LAFCos role and challenges in determining an adequate and sustainable water supply.

    Registration is now closed.
