      In the drought-prevalent climate of California, water availability, water
      policy issues and water conservation strategies have never been more timely
      concerns. The 2005 Water Conservation Showcase will feature the latest
      cutting-edge products, services, and information available to help
      Californians conserve and wisely manage our most abused and most critical
      natural resource. The event will showcase products like water-efficient
      fixtures, drought-tolerant landscaping systems, leak detection equipment,
      permeable pavement, drip irrigation and rainwater harvesting systems. In
      addition to products and services, the showcase will highlight creative
      conservation ideas and problem-solving design approaches through lectures
      and panel discussions by government and industry leaders addressing regional
      water issues. Join us for this important and educational event co-sponsored
      by the Northern California Chapter of the US Green Building Council (
