26th California Water Policy Conference to be Held in San Diego April 6-7

The 26th Annual California Water Policy Conference will be held this month in San Diego from April 6-7 and will bring together water leaders representing agricultural, environmental, urban, government and private sector constituencies, as well as interested individuals from the general public.

The conference provides a unique forum where attendees can inform and be informed through active dialogue.

Western Growers Executive Vice President Dave Puglia will be participating in the Afternoon Plenary discussion on Thursday April 6, 2017, entitled, “Water Scarcity & (Un)reliability: The Impact on California’s Agricultural Future.”  Ashley Boren, Executive Director, Sustainable Conservation, Member of the State Board of Food and Agriculture and Eric Larson, Executive Director, San Diego Farm Bureau will join Puglia on the panel. Joseph McIntyre, President, Ag Innovations, will moderate.

During the session, Puglia will provide insight on how even in wet years the state is ill-prepared to capture, convey and store water and how those inadequacies will continue to affect the nation’s most productive agriculture state.
