The Municipal Water District of Orange County (MWDOC) would like to invite you to join us for a Water Policy Forum & Dinner at 5 p.m. on Thursday, August 30, where we are pleased to welcome keynote speaker Roger Patterson, Assistant General Manager of the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MET). Mr. Patterson oversees Metropolitan’s strategic water initiatives for the Sacramento-San Joaquin Bay Delta and Colorado River.
Patterson will discuss the recent biological opinion from two federal agencies that determined the twin-tunnel California WaterFix will not negatively impact endangered species in the Delta, which is the heart of the State Water Project. About 30 percent of the water used in OC comes through the Delta.
Governor Jerry Brown supports the project and wants MET and the other largest customers of the State Water Project, to decide in September if they are interested in participating the project, which would be paid for by water customers.
The dinner is at the Great Wolf Lodge in Garden Grove.
