Localizing California Waters

Integrated Watershed Solutions for Healthy Communities


The Localizing California Waters (LCW) Conference connects unlikely allies towards the broader goal of water management throughout California by discussing local water approaches in an intimate setting.

LCW breaks down barriers to alignment through presentations, round table discussions, workshops and information networking to work towards an outcome of innovative solutions to local and global climate challenges by advancing local water policy and enacting best water management practices at an accelerated pace.

This year, we're focusing on activating the Water Portfolio.

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.
