2018 CASQA Annual Conference

Sponsoring + Presenting + Exhibiting

The 2018 California Stormwater Quality Association (CASQA) Annual Conference will be held in downtown Riverside, the heart of the Inland Empire. This year’s conference theme, Connecting the Drops from Summit to Sea, reflects its location in the upper portion of the Santa Ana River Watershed, an area of diverse habitat and extreme topography. The densely populated watershed is home to over six million people in four southern California counties. Here, as in all of California and beyond, stormwater professionals are hard at work complying with NPDES permits and TMDLs, creating urban infrastructure that implements low impact development and reduces hydromodification impacts, capturing stormwater for water supply, and providing protection for groundwater and surface water resources.
