California’s Water Crisis Solutions
Water Conserving Landscape Design
2:00pm – 3:00pm
Bill Schnetz, Schnetz Landscape Company, is a certified landscaping professional and design-build landscape contractor with more than thirty year’s experience in garden design, construction, and maintenance. Schnetz co-authored “Life after Lawns: 8 steps From Grass to a Water-Wise Garden,” an environmentally timely book. The Schnetz philosophy is that landscaping raised to higher levels of artistic expression can very easily be called “landsculpture”. Landscaping in the hands of a trained professional is unlimited in its potential for creativity. A wonderful garden is like a portrait to an art collector.

He has been working on the development of multiple large-scale seawater desalination projects located in California. Poseidon Water, a company specializing in water project development, currently has two desalination projects being developed in Southern California – Carlsbad and Huntington Beach. In light of the current drought crisis, Southern Californians are becoming more aware of the need for alternative sources for pure drinking water. Desalination is a process that uses multiple steps to remove salt dissolved in water, purifying the water to make it safe to drink or use for other purposes.
