WELL San Joaquin Valley Water Summit 2023
On October 14, WELL hosted the San Joaquin Valley Water Summit. In attendance were 40 local leaders from throughout the region.
Community water outreach experts shared best practices to engage community input for the design and implementation of water conservation strategies. Panelists also shared the changing water landscape in the region and the projects needed to ensure reliable and long-term water supplies. Finally, researchers shared information on the Multibenefit Land Repurposing Program and the changes needed to improve environmental conditions for residents throughout the region. As is WELL’s tradition, the summit ended with a moment of unity by singing “De Colores.”
These kinds of educational opportunities allow local Latino elected officials to engage with WELL and learn about the most pressing water issues in their region and the solutions they can implement.
