 SACRAMENTO— Nearly 150 water conservation professionals, water industry leaders and elected officials came together March 7 in Sacramento to mark the official launch and evolution of the California Water Efficiency Partnership (CalWEP).

Over the past several years, the Partnership has been undergoing an organizational transformation, from implementing 25-year old best management practices on water conservation as the California Urban Water Conservation Council into a new entity focused on helping water providers meet emerging legislative and regulatory mandates for Making Water Conservation a California Way of Life.

“As urban water conservation challenges and requirements have evolved in California, so too has this organization successfully evolved,” said CalWEP Executive Director Mary Ann Dickinson. “We are building on a proud legacy of collaboration, expertise and leadership dedicated to addressing California’s unique challenges and opportunities but with a new focus and decision-making framework.”
