Water: The Lifeblood of Silicon Valley

The Santa Clara Valley Water District (SCVWD), formed in 1929 following a multiyear drought, has built a comprehensive water management system that has supported the transformation from the agricultural “Valley of Heart’s Delight” to the technological “Silicon Valley.”  Come learn where your water comes from, how it is stored and managed.  How will the current drought affect Silicon Valley?  What challenges does the SCVWD face and how does it work with other agencies?  What innovations are allowing water re-use?
