In addition to his duties as a Facilitator for the Caucus, Conner Everts is the Executive Director of the Southern California Watershed Alliance and co-chair of the Desal Response Group. He is chair of Public Officials for Water and Environmental Reform (POWER) as well as other organizations. Conner was elected to the Casitas Municipal Water District and was president of the Ojai Basin Management Ground Water Agency. Conner was convener of the California Urban Water Conservation Council and on the state task forces on Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs), Desalination, and the SWRCB recycled water stakeholder process and most recently is on the Department of Public Health Direct Potable Reuse Advisory Group. But his most important work is as elder advisor to the Environmental Justice Coalition for Water and with the Southern California Steelhead Coalition helping remove dams on the streams where he caught fish as a youth and hopefully others can in the future.
