State Sen. Ben Hueso's Interest in Water Runs Deep
San Diego County is a leader in water conservation and management strategies that will become even more critical in coming years, state Sen. Ben Hueso (San Diego) said during an Aug. 1 Legislative Roundtable at the Water Authority’s headquarters.
“San Diego is really a model in the state,” Hueso told an audience of about 90 water agency representatives, business and civic leaders and other stakeholders from around the county who attended the morning event.
“San Diego leads the state in conservation. How we’re able to manage the system without an increase in the growth of consumption is just amazing," he said. "It’s just a testament to the great minds and people that we have managing our system, ensuring that we continue to have water … given the enormous challenges we have in providing for San Diego compared to other parts of the state.”
