Understanding San Diego’s Quest for Water Independence from MWD
Featuring: Steve Erie, Ph.D., Professor, Author, and Water Policy Expert
The Municipal Water District of Orange County (MWDOC) invites you to attend our July 25, 2012 Water Policy Forum & Dinner featuring guest speaker Steve Erie. His keynote address, titled “Understanding San Diego’s Quest for Water Independence from MWD,” will focus on one of today’s most controversial and debated issues: San Diego’s water rate conflict with the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD).
Mr. Erie is a Professor and Director of Urban Studies and Planning at the University of California, San Diego. A renowned expert in the area of water policy, he has authored several books, including Beyond Chinatown and Paradise Plundered. During the event, he will be available to sign copies of his books, and you will have the opportunity to purchase Beyond Chinatown when you register (and also at the event).
Immediately prior to the dinner and keynote address, MWDOC will be holding a reception to recognize the achievements of Dr. Jim Gates, who is retiring from Santiago Canyon College. Please join us from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. as we honor Dr. Gates and recognize his contributions to the water industry.
Online registration and payment options are available through the link above. Guests who register by Friday, July 20th will receive the early registration fee of $75 per person. This fee includes the pre-dinner reception (cash bar), three-course dinner (choice of entrée), and self-parking. The registration fee will increase to $85 per person after July 20th.
