Transformative Action for Water Affordability and Climate Equity: A Conversation with Max Gomberg

May 30 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

About the Speaker

Max Gomberg is an independent consultant working with California-based and national advocates on water affordability and climate equity. He supports the development of legislative and regulatory policies and provides advice and mentorship to emerging water equity leaders. In July 2022, he resigned from his position as conservation and climate change manager at the State Water Resources Control Board (Water Board) due to a lack of urgency and political will to confront climate change.

During his tenure at the Water Board, Mr. Gomberg led development of water conservation, access, affordability, and climate change policies across California. Under his leadership, the Water Board developed a statewide plan for low-income water rate assistance, acquired $1 billion for water debt relief, adopted a comprehensive climate change mitigation and adaptation policy, and implemented regulations to reduce urban water use. Mr. Gomberg has over 15 years of water policy experience and holds a BA from the University of Chicago and a Masters in Public Policy from UCLA.

Part of Public Policy’s 25 Anniversary Series and the Transformative Action series:
