Thank you to everyone who joined us for the first Tri-County Regional Water Summit in Ojai, CA.

Localizing California Water: VENTURA TO SLO explored the many geographical similarities and vulnerabilities of coastal San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties.

Focuses included water security, diminishing instream summer base flows, water equity, heightened fire and flooding risks.  Many organizations in these counties have successfully worked on streamlining efforts to reach a shared water vision, such as the Ventura River Watershed Council, Central Coast Water Conservancy and local IRWMs.
