Event Details



An Education Collaboration between The William J. Worthen Foundation, USGBC NCC, AIA SF, and the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission


Architects, Engineers, Owners, Portfolio Managers, Policy Makers, Regulators, Utilities


Objective: To focus on the practical design and application of water reuse systems for architects, engineers, and building owners; also, highlight the success of SF’s regulatory process and to address the associated regulatory and permitting challenges in jurisdictions that don’t have a well-defined process or where authority is unclear.


California State Senator Scott Wiener – Opening Keynote
Senator Scott Wiener represents San Francisco, Daly City, Colma, Broadmoor, and portions of South San Francisco in the State Senate. During his time in the Senate, Senator Wiener has advocated for and passed legislation to update California’s water system. This year he authored and the Governor signed SB 966, which expands on-site water recycling by requiring that the State Water Resources Control Board issue comprehensive regulations, including health and safety standards, to help local jurisdictions adopt these technologies.
