August 29, 2017

At their 2017 Annual conference earlier this month in southern California, the Urban Water Institute (UWI) Board of Directors elected MCWRA executive director John Kingsbury to serve on their Board.  

The Urban Water Institute, Inc., was incorporated as a nonprofit public education organization in the State of California in 1993, with the Mission to provide non-partisan information of timely and pertinent interest to the water resource industry, including public agencies and private firms, with particular emphasis on water economics, management and resource policies as they affect consumers and the general economy.

Over the years, MCWRA and UWI has built a relationship and looks for common water interests to help advance sound water policy in California.  For example, long-term water use efficiency in California is a pertinent issue to urban and rural areas alike. At the Urban Water Institute’s Annual Conference in August last year, the UWI held a session with approximately 150 attendees from urban and rural interests from stakeholders across the State. MCWRA and UWI developed and submitted recommended policy principles for long-term water use efficiency in California.

“It is an honor to be selected and elected to the Urban Water Institute Board of Directors”, says John Kingsbury.  “I look forward to an active role on the Board to help the two organizations further our regional and statewide water interests.”

The Urban Water Institute will host its Spring Water Conference, being held at Hilton Palm Springs on February 7-9, 2018 in Palm Springs, CA.
