On May 1 and 2, 2012, a group of concerned agricultural land owners assembled to discuss a single topic, "Water Strategy." The meeting was intended to identify water issues facing the agricultural industry and the current state of water policy. Deliberations quickly turned to strategies needed to prioritize adequate water supplies for all users. It was agreed that agricultural leaders must join with other water stewards to address water supply and management strategies.
