Many experts believe that water will surpass energy as the resource of greatest concern in California. Unpredictable rainfall, climate change, and increasing costs associated with treating and delivering water are some of the water-related concerns facing the state today.
The 7th Annual Water Conservation Showcase will address many of these issues through presentations and table-top displays. Information on water-conserving strategies, the energy and water relationship, policy updates, technological developments, and case studies will also be included.
The Showcase was conceived by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) – Northern California Chapter and the Pacific Energy Center in 2004. The event attracts a diverse audience including architects, building operators, building owners, civil engineers, landscape architects, landscape contractors, mechanical engineers, property managers, sustainability consultants, water district employees and homeowners.
The showcase expects to draw more than 1,000 attendees and 50+ exhibitors and will feature the newest innovative water efficiency technology.
