The Voluntary Settlement Agreement process is a mechanism that we need to see more of in California and other western states. Our continued effort in solving complex water issues based on individual needs and wants will usually result in dysfunction. That is not the end point that we seek. Inspired views are in great demand and those views many times come with lifetime experiences of our semi-retired and retired professionals.
In front of a near full house at the recent Anne J. Schneider Lecture at the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento, Secretary Bruce Babbitt shared his most intimate advice. The Secretary stated, “Talking, listening and understanding each other is what we want to keep doing. The process is important so don’t yield and never give up.”
Operation Unite® understands the needs to keep the conversation going and build public and stakeholder responsibility for our water resource projects. Public responsibility is built by respecting everyone, showcasing water related responsibilities that occur in our communities and listen and share, continuously. In the end, trust is built with previously oppositional groups and projects are completed. The best news is; it doesn’t end there. Responsibility, respect and trust are foundational in solving other community related issues like the homeless problems, housing, healthcare and energy. Turn your water projects into water success stories. Operation Unite® will brighten your day.
