About this event

On Thursday, October 21st, there will be a nationwide “Imagine a Day Without Water” to recognize the role of water in our lives and threats to it. THE LWV of San Diego and the LWV of North County San Diego together will host a virtual screening of the documentary “River’s End: California’s Latest Water War” during the two weeks prior to October 21st. Then on Thursday, October 21st at 5:30-7pm via Zoom, there will be a panel discussion entitled “Imagine a Day Without Water in the San Diego Region”.

Registrants for the webinar will receive a link to view the 2021 documentary “River’s End.” We encourage all to view this award-winning film before the meeting on October 21st so that our discussion of regional water issues can be understood in the context of our state’s elaborate systems for water distribution, its history of water wars, and the many interests currently competing for this vital resource. The link will be available to registrants between October 15-22.

The October 21st panel discussion on water in the San Diego Region will address the current water supply and infrastructure issues for the region, as well as the future prospects. We are pleased to have the following panel of experts:

Dee Zinke, Assistant General Manager and Chief External Affairs Officer, Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, which provides a significant portion of the San Diego Region’s water

Anne Omsted, who has served on the San Diego County Water Authority Board, is on the LWV of California’s Water Committee, and is a recent President of the LWV of North County San Diego

Dana Friehauf, Water Resources Manager (retired) at the San Diego County Water Authority, currently serves on the Santa Fe Irrigation Board and is a current LWVSD member
