About the San Bernardino County Water Conference
The San Bernardino County Water Conference was established in 2007 to provide a forum for multi-agency dialogue. Each year water experts, stakeholders, public officials from our county and throughout the state participate to identify regional solutions to maintaining an ample water supply. Since 2007, more than 2,200 people have come together to discuss issues such as groundwater depletion, water-quality issues, strict regulations, monumental infrastructure expenditures and few alternative sources of water.
In order for businesses and residents to continue to have access to water, and our local economy to prosper, we need to continue the discussion to meet present and future water demands.
