“UWMP Plan Updates That

Panelists will discuss SB 7’s detailed

water conservation mandates and new

statutory requirements, which combine

with increasing uncertainty about longterm

water supply reliability (due to

drought, environmental regulation, climate

change, and other factors) and the

increasing threat of litigation to make the

next round of Urban Water Management

Plan (UWMP) updates more demanding

than many public water suppliers

expected.

“Finding Sufficient Revenues During

a Water Crisis and Continued Water

Conservation”

This session will cover strategies to address

the revenue shortfall caused by the

drought and regulatory shortages of water.

While this has been a “normal” rain year,

consumers are expected to continue their

water-saving conservation measures. This

will mean a continued low water delivery

and low revenue situation for many districts.

In addition, consumers will continue

to voice their concerns (“You asked us to

save water and we did, now you raise our

water rates.”) and will continue to organize

Proposition 218 protests of rate increases.

water managers face the risk of

ongoing drought and environmental

regulations that are resulting in droughtlike

water allocations even during wetter

years. Agricultural and urban leaders

stay afloat until a long-term solution is

implemented.

“Salinity and Drought: From a Thorny

What lessons in managing salt over the

last hundred years can guide the future of

salt and nutrient management in California

Evolving policy, drought, and water

supply reductions complicate current

and future management of water supply

increasing the importance of salinity

management. State policy on salinity and

nutrient management is changing; an

understanding of past salt and nutrient

impacts sees Recycled Water Policy and

CV-SALTS becoming a key to California’s

water supply future.

• “These water people are only following

the typical examples of the moneysucking

government leeches, where

pensions are so good.”

• “Guess I should get used to drinking

more beer since the cost of water

will soon be going through the roof

to cover increased pensions for all of

those hard working stiffs.”

• “How about we FIRE these idiots for

not having enough water for the population,

with the resulting rationing.”

• “Their existing pension plans should

be reduced...just like my 401k was

raided by wall street, it only seems

fair.”

This session will address concerns and

There was a time not long ago when specific

reporters were charged with covering

the “water beat.” The downsizing of print

pool of reporters who know water and how

to communicate essential information to

the public. How will Californians get their

SROI is a process for performing costbenefit

concept that a project can be valued

from multiple perspectives. SROI

analyses apply best available scientific

data and analysis to measure project

performance for each criterion across the

triple-bottom-line. The process can be

applied to comparable projects across

multiple scales (from local to landscape)

to highlight the best and highest value

based “at least in part” on the quantity

delivered. Although the legislation does
