Sustain Southern California (Sustain SoCal) has announced that it will host the Water Solutions 7 (WS7) Conference Thursday, Aug. 25. The event will be held in person at UCI Beall Applied Innovation, located at 5270 California Avenue in Irvine. WS7 focuses on real-life strategies and cutting-edge innovation to ensure sufficient and affordable water supplies in Southern California and the surrounding regions.

The event will primarily involve live presentations on opportunities, challenges and technologies for reuse, desal, stormwater, energy nexus, contamination, evolving trends in investments, policy frameworks, and big data from decision makers at both revolutionary companies and municipal authorities. Speakers will present their views on timely topics in their respective areas of expertise, focusing on pragmatic solutions.

Liz Crosson, chief sustainability, resilience and innovation officer for Metropolitan Water District, will deliver the keynote address. Other distinguished speakers will include Todd Corbin, general manager of Riverside Public Utilities; Dennis Calvert, CEO of BioLargo; and Duane Cave, board member of the Moulton Niguel Water District.

After the speakers’ sessions, an Innovators Showcase will be held where C-suite leaders and senior executives will offer attendees a glimpse into the latest technological developments tailored to solve specific pain points.

The event will culminate in a two-hour live expo and reception where attendees will interact with thought leaders, discuss best practices and operational insights, engage with the senior management of participating companies, and network with fellow professionals from within California and nationally.

“The Water Solutions event series is now in its seventh iteration. It has consistently offered an exciting platform for students, professionals and the general public, whose support we appreciate very much,” says Scott Kitcher, president and CEO of Sustain SoCal. “At Sustain SoCal, we are dedicated to contributing to the sustainability and economic discourse in the Southern California region and beyond. By being strategically located at UCI Beall Applied Innovation, we have been privileged to enable collaboration between world-class university resources and industry professionals in the water supply and allied sectors for more than a decade.”
