Hosted by the Water Resources Advisory Commission (WRAC), the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) convened a Water Conservation Summit on December 4, 2007, to gather information and input from local, state and national experts on the components of an achievable, meaningful and lasting water conservation program. Speakers provided case studies on water conservation programs and identified practical components, successes and obstacles that the District may face in design and implementation.
The Summit was the kick-off for a stakeholder-driven process to develop a comprehensive and enduring water conservation program for South Florida. The District convened a stakeholder group, consisting of 21 representatives from 13 interest groups, to provide input and recommendations on a long-term water conservation program. The stakeholder group met monthly from December 2007 to May 2008 to assist the District in the development of the water conservation program.
FLASH Resolutions, Janice M. Fleischer, J.D., designed and facilitated the December Summit as well as the five (5) stakeholder meetings.
