Mission Statement

Participants in the Southern California Water Dialogue (Water Dialogue) meet voluntarily on a monthly basis to explore water-related issues of vital interest to our region. The Water Dialogue serves as a clearinghouse and advocate for projects, activities, and processes that will improve the quality and reliability of Southern California's water supply.

Who We Are

The Southern California Water Dialogue was established in 1998. The Water Dialogue explores the common interests among Southern California water agencies, environmental organizations, and public interest organizations.

The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California typically hosts monthly meetings presented via Zoom on the fourth Wednesday of the month.  To sign up to receive monthly meeting notices, email Kathy Caldwell, Coordinator. These meetings address the management of Southern California’s water supply to meet future needs and focus on reliability, water quality, conservation, recycling, storage, conveyance, and watershed management.
