ARCSA 2014 Annual Conference

Phoenix Convention Center * Phoenix, Arizona

Rainwater Harvesting: Solutions to U.S. Water Supply Challenges

ARCSA's 10th Annual Conference - Educational Rainwater Workshops on Nov. 13-16 and 20th* Annual Conference on Nov. 17-18 * ARCSA/IA EXPO on Nov. 19-20.


This year ARCSA is celebrating its TWENTY YEAR ANNIVERSARY and our Conference will focus on the challenges that the United States water supply faces and how Rainwater Harvesting can provide economically and environmentally viable solutions. ARCSA’s Celebrity Key Note Speaker and notable educators and professionals will discuss fragile water supplies, impacts on water supplies by drought and flooding, four steps to a clean tank, and other topics such as myths about rainwater harvesting systems. We will also discuss the latest on legislative actions, codes and standards, rainwater guidelines, and stormwater guidelines. A conference wrap-up will include a panel and attendee discussion on how rainwater catchment in the U.S. can help provide solutions to U.S. water challenges.


This year promises to be another exciting conference as we continue our relationship with the Irrigation Association (IA) and provide attendees both ARCSA's educational rainwater sessions and IA's educational irrigation sessions as well as access to the irrigation/rainwater/pond exhibition.


ARCSA’s arrangement with the IA will ensure highly visible, well attended lectures. All lectures will be held either on Monday November 17th or Tuesday, November 18th.
