Water Seminar Series

Join us for a series of seminars that brings together water community professionals in and around the Sacramento region with the Sacramento State community to educate, collaborate, and expand on the broad topics of water use, management, and protection in California.

Water Seminar

The Office of Water Programs regrets that we are postponing the Water Seminar originally scheduled for Friday, March 13, 2020, in response to community health concerns about COVID-19 (the novel coronavirus). In following guidance from the California State University system and Sacramento State, we determined that postponing this event serves the campus goal of participating in community mitigation efforts to reduce transmission of and minimize the effects of the virus. A notice will be sent with the new date for the Water Seminar when it has been rescheduled. Thank you.
