The goal of USCID’s 2017 Conference in Sacramento is to assist water districts by providing tools and case studies to address the wide spectrum of issues every day as they try to effectively and efficiently provide water to their customers. These issues range from “big picture” items such as how to properly manage their water supply, determining where water is located in the district on a minute-to-minute basis, addressing environmental issues and regulations, and maintaining the district’s infrastructure, while also identifying funding sources that districts can use to assist with their operations.

The Conference will provide a forum for water district staff, irrigation and drainage specialists, consultants, equipment suppliers and academics to share innovative solutions and learn from each other’s experiences. Water resources professionals from around the world are encouraged to attend.
