Guests attended a wide-range of panels that included topics such as stormwater pollution and water quality.  Other subjects discussed were: water treatment methods, tap water versus bottled water, the infestation of quagga mussels in the west, and superfund clean-up efforts in the San Gabriel Valley.

The forum was a great opportunity for water enthusiasts and professionals to network and learn more about water management in their districts. It was also a prime occasion to get information about what cities are doing to improve the quality of their water.

The San Gabriel Valley Water Forum proved to be a successful event that provided citizens with expansive information on water and water quality.
