Our 2015 Conference will focus on rainwater catchment for uses beyond the garden as well as using water supplies wisely. We will look at how rainwater catchment is one solution to mitigating drought and decentralizing stormwater pollution.

Colin Frayne of Association of Water Technologies is the keynote speaker for this year's event. Mr. Frayne has a great depth of experience with reusing water, water management, and water shortages around the world.
Other topics will include: Performance-Based Water Conservation with WERS, Codes and Regulations, Potable Water Standards, Rainwater for Cooling Tower Make-up Water, Home Depot's Dedication or Rainwater Catchment, and Commercial Level Raingardens. In addition, attendees will hear the results of several research projects involving rainwater catchment.
Last year's conference attendees requested opportunities for networking -- we heard you! Thanks to a sponsorship by RainHarvesting Supplies Inc., the 2015 Conference will feature an ARCSA Social at Café Sevilla on Monday, November 9 from 6 - 8 pm. The ARCSA Social is included in your registration and/or you may purchase additional individual tickets. Tickets include a drink, appetizers, and plenty of time to get to know your fellow rainwater harvesters.
ARCSA will continue our relationship with the Irrigation Association (IA) and provide attendees ARCSA's educational rainwater sessions, IA's educational irrigation sessions, the IA's Gala on Tuesday night as well as access to the irrigation/rainwater/pond exhibition. California has proven to be IA's best and biggest shows and they are looking forward to co-locating with ARCSA again this year in Long Beach, California. With water in the West at a premium, more attendees than ever will be looking for new and better ways to collect and retain water, so don't miss the EXPO opportunity.
