The American Academy of Environmental Engineers and Scientists is dedicated to excellence in the practice of environmental engineering to ensure the public health safety and welfare. In Southern California a key component of the practice focuses on meeting the challenge of securing future water supplies. Historically, water purchased from outside the region provided a reliable source. However, reduction in imported water supplies, combined with recurring droughts and population growth, indicate that demand for water will overwhelm supply unless new regional sources are developed.

General Manager Jeff Kightlinger will discuss progress on the Regional Recycled Water Program, a partnership with the Sanitation Districts of Los Angeles County to purify wastewater and produce high quality water that could be used again. The program will start with a demonstration facility and could eventually become one of the largest advanced water treatment plants in the world. Vice Chancellor Mark Gold will discuss the vulnerability of water sources to politics, drought, climate change and crumbling concrete. Assistant Deputy Director Dan Lafferty will discuss what it would take to capture all LA Countywide Stormwater for local beneficial reuse. Our current system captures 70%, leaving 750,000 acre-ft per year that rushes to the ocean. This interactive forum on developing local water supplies will be moderated by professors Michael Stenstrom and Joseph Reichenberger.
