Annual Conference:

Thank You For Attending and Participating!

The 2023 CalDesal Annual Conference in Sacramento during February 16-17 was a tremendous success! Those attending and participating in the conference enjoyed a great opportunity to hear about the role that desalination is playing – and will continue to play – in California’s water resilient future. We heard from Newsom Administration officials and key regulatory agency leaders about the work that a number of state agencies are currently engaged on within the desalination space. Attendees received a fantastic overview of brackish water desalination throughout the state, a timely update on the state of desalination research that is ongoing, and a synopsis of the broad array of innovations in desalination technology. 

CalDesal is grateful for the great perspectives, counsel, and wisdom that was brought to the conference planning effort through our Events Planning Committee – Tim Hogan, Michelle Peters, Dan Holmes, Stacy Taylor, and Kevin Thomas. Thank you!

Many individuals participated actively in the Annual Conference as panelists and moderators, and we are greatly appreciative of your willingness to bring timely and meaningful content to conference attendees. Thank you!
