Join the USGBC Northern California community on March 21, the day before World Water Day, at the Pacific Energy Center in San Francisco for the 16th annual Water Conservation Showcase, one of the most highly regarded water conservation events in California.
The annual event, which draws hundreds of people, is organized through the combined efforts of USGBC Northern California, Pacific Gas & Electric, East Bay Municipal Utility District, the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission, AIA San Francisco and the City of San Jose. Because of this partnership, tickets are free of charge.
The showcase has grown over the years, as interest in water-related research and progressive design solutions have increased. Now, as California’s citizens continue to face issues with drought, wildfire risks and clean water access, the showcase has expanded its program to cover a variety of topics related to water conservation and design tactics for efficient use of water. The program is now available online.
Experts from across California and the nation will come together to discuss the most pressing water issues facing water access and availability the state. Attend education sessions and workshops on firescaping, residential landscape design, and rainwater harvesting. Learn the ins and outs of water-related credits used in LEED certification. The showcase will also play host to the annual Bay Area Water Conservation Awards. To get an idea of the topics and discussions that come up at the event, you can check out all of last year’s sessions on USGBC’s YouTube channel.
