State Stormwater Hearing

Fri, 05/18/2012 - 10:00am - 12:30pm

A special California State Legislature Hearing on the Future of Stormwater: Capture, Store and Supply

The California State Legislative Hearing was a success!

On Friday, May 18 TreePeople hosted a special California State Legislative Hearing. This hearing highlighted innovations that government agencies and organizations, including TreePeople, have built demonstrating how harvesting and managing local rainwater can be scaled region-wide to provide a substantial portion of our water supply.

Thank you for joining us to learn with our legislators about the tremendous opportunities as well as the obstacles that must be addressed to allow a major investment in developing rainwater into a vital local water supply.
