CASQA 2022 Annual Conference

October 24-26 - Palm Springs Convention Center

Celebrating Milestones: Taking the Next Steps for Stormwater

"Remember to celebrate milestones as you prepare for the road ahead." - Nelson Mandela

As we emerge from the last two years and come back in person it's time to celebrate! This year not only brings us together again, but also marks 50 years of the Clean Water Act, 35 Years of the Water Quality Act of 1987, and the 20th anniversary of the California Stormwater Quality Association (CASQA). While looking at how far we have come, we must continue to look toward the next steps needed to further protect our state waterways. We will delve into the details of up-and-coming new permits while focusing on the lessons learned from past permits. We will explore ways to equitably support water quality and provide resilience in our infrastructure for future generations, highlight ways to effectively implement true source control measures, and plan for emerging pollutants of concern. These are just a few of the diverse topics we will cover during the CASQA 2022 Conference in Palm Springs. We hope you will join us as we gather again to celebrate past successes and lay the steppingstones to progress.
