The One Water Leadership (OWL) Summit will be hosted by the City of Angels (and Dodgers, too) with Spotlight Panels, where teams of leaders describe successes, ongoing challenges, and emerging opportunities.  This is the fourth year the U.S. Water Alliance continues to build a body-of-work in case studies that inspire the nation’s innovators and decision makers present to shape the fate of one water management.  Large enough to attract national figures, but small enough to allow all attendees to engage in strategic conversations, this meeting is proving that water is a key integrator for making cities sustainable.


A.G. Kawamura, Former California Secretary of Food and Agriculture; Larry Schweiger, President & CEO, National Wildlife Federation; Jeff Sterba, President & CEO, American Water; Jim Clark, Senior VP, Black & Veatch; Kathy Freas, Senior VP and Global Service Team Leader, CH2M Hill, and others.

STRATEGIC SIDEBAR SESSIONS – Attendees will engage leaders, across the table to discuss:

  • Solutions from the Land, Water & Agriculture
  • Translating the Value of Infrastructure Investments
  • Institutional Issues for Green-Gray Infrastructure Based on Integrated “One Water” Management and Resource Recovery
  • THE EXPANDED EMERALD NECKLACE – Green Infrastructure for All Communities
  • BUILDING RESILIENT UTILITIES: How can Water and Electric Utilities Work Together?

ROUNDTABLE DISCUSSIONS where attendees shop topics to listen and learn about hot issues such as alternative funding options, hydraulic fracturing and open competition for selecting pipe materials.

The final day, September 26, will include an impressive focus on Southern California with water sustainability leaders and planners from the city and county and surrounding region. An exhibition of innovative green infrastructure and resource recovery businesses will also be on display.

Hosted by the City of L.A., this very local road trip highlights inspiring projects that embrace the “one water” theme and culminates in a reception/barbeque at the Echo Park Lake Reclamation Project sponsored by Black & Veatch.
