It's no secret that California has water reliability issues. The outdated infrastructure that 25 million people rely on needs a serious upgrade in order for us to continue working, living, and enjoying life in this fresh water-deprived area.
Join Leaders 2020 and San Diego Green Drinks for a happy hour collaboration! We’re discussing water reliability in Southern California and the California WaterFix project with Amy Chen, Metropolitan Water District Program Director at the San Diego County Water Authority. This is a great opportunity to network with sustainably-minded people from all over San Diego, learn from a local leader, and learn more about a topic that’s incredibly relevant to our livelihood.
