Water Infrastructure Networking Summit (WINS)

WINS 2024

The Water Infrastructure Networking Summit (WINS) has evolved into a groundbreaking initiative spanning five counties: San Diego, Orange, Los Angeles, Riverside, and San Bernardino. This year’s expansive event is dedicated to fostering a new era of politics in water management, addressing critical needs, and exploring funding opportunities for regional water and wastewater infrastructure.

WINS will bring together a diverse group of leaders from different sectors as they highlight infrastructure vulnerabilities that impact our regional economy and
communities. The goal is to facilitate dialogue between regional industry leaders and officials from local, state, and federal government agencies to create a path forward through collaboration and empowered innovation.

For sponsorship opportunities please reach out to outreach@mnwd.com.
