TALK: Israel’s Water Innovators sparked the creation of Global Water Works in 2016. We are keeping all in the Middle East in our prayers as the war continues, and we invite you to explore Israel’s proven water innovators through the 2016 preview, and recap of the Israel California Water Conference. INNOVATION AND INTELLIGENT DESIGN: Constructed (and natural) wetlands provide an

way to treat wastewater and stormwater while providing nature preserves that the public can visit.





WONDER OF WATER: More than 35 professionals, students and teachers joined the celebration of 2023 RainReach for Schools, which provided clean water to 3000+ students at 10 Schools and one orphanage in 2023. The physical water solution was accompanied by stewardship education. The enthusiasm was evident from those impacted plus those who played a part in delivering the comprehensive solution. Join hands with the RainReach team by giving of your time, talents or treasure, as we plan to serve 50 schools in 2024. FUN WITH WATER happens when we work together, as the Loon Lake Management Association shows through their combined success, uniting and educating their 13

associations and tackling the invasive weed problem. #WATERTECH SHOWCASE: Two members of
