The Southern California Salinity Coalition (SCSC) invites you to join a gathering of leaders, practitioners, and regulators to consider changing conditions and emerging trends that impact salinity management strategies at the local and regional level. At the Summit, thought leaders from the Southern California water community will explain the importance of the One Water paradigm and how it is driving:  

  • Ongoing research on how water produced at the Bud Lewis Desalination Facility in Carlsbad is improving water delivery infrastructure in San Diego; cutting-edge research at the Orange County Water District to improve municipal-scale reverse osmosis membranes; and, how One Water efforts across may affect ocean and inland dischargers across Southern California.

  • The ways that regulators and utilities are adapting permit conditions to support One Water principles.  

  • Opportunities to collaborate on regional Southern California salinity management initiatives.  

The Summit will include a combination of informative talks, panel discussions, and breakout sessions. A hosted networking reception will conclude the Summit. SCSC will publish a Workshop Report describing and prioritizing future actions identified by Summit participants. Details about the day's speakers and events are on the Program page.

Participants in the Summit will gain a greater understanding of the challenges and opportunities that salinity management poses to the future of Southern California’s water supply.
