Steering Committee

The Water Dialogue is guided by a Steering Committee reflecting different interest sectors (e.g. water districts, environmental/public interest groups, and local, regional, and state governmental agencies). Members are chosen from among the eight counties in Southern California.

The current Steering Committee members represent Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, Delta Stewardship Council, Caltech/JPL/NASA, San Diego County Water Authority, Southern California Watershed Alliance, West Basin Municipal Water District, Central Basin Municipal Water District, Irvine Ranch Water District, Southern California Water Coalition, Western Municipal Water District, Trabuco Canyon Water District, Atwater Consulting Group, Los Angeles County Department of Public Works and Parsons.
