San Mateo County Event Center – Event Pavilion

Registration is now closed, but space is available for walk-ins.

The Water Summit is the culminating event in our 2015 Indicators series featuring water as our key indicator. Speakers will explore the interconnections between local efforts to address sea level rise, manage storm water, and recycle water. A brief update on our indicators research and a water expo will also be included. Stay tuned for more details as speakers and vendors are confirmed!

This is a free event, but donations and SSMC memberships are encouraged to support the Indicators program and events. Attendees will have an opportunity to win a rain barrel, donated by C/CAG.

Take an active mode – walk, bike, bus, take transit or carpool – to the event and be entered into a drawing for prizes! The event center is a short walk from the Hillsdale Caltrain station and several SamTrans buses stop nearby, including the ECR line. To help organize carpools, we have set up a Group Carpool page.
