Saturday, August 22, 2015 • 12:30 - 4:00pm
at Loyola Marymount University


The Westchester-Playa Democratic and Loyola Marymount University Invite You to Join Us and Help Save Our Water!

As our state continues to experience near-record and record hot conditions increasing the severity of the drought’s effects on communities, agriculture and the environment,  the Westchester-Playa Democratic Club and Loyola Marymount University have put together a panel of some of the top water and water conservation experts to educate and recommend options everyone can implement and help safeguard our water supply. 

Join us on Saturday August 22nd for a lively and informative water forum and expo.  Learn about the historical drought problem, where our water comes,  who’s  using the most water, and what YOU can do to be a  part of the solution for SAVING OUR WATER. 

Following the panel discussions there will be an audience question and answer period and an opportunity for you to meet organizations at tables providing services and information for conserving water.   

We hope to see you at the forum and joining together to instill a smart water management and water conservation culture. RSVP a must as seating is limited.
