Speakers such as, City Manager Pat West, Water Department General Manager, Kevin Wattier, and Director of the Water Replenishment District, Lillian Kawasaki will be present Saturday to discuss the creation of a sustainable Long Beach.

“This is great opportunity for the community to come and learn about what Long Beach is doing to become a ‘green’ city” said 5th District Councilwoman Gerrie Schipske.

On Sunday the Long Beach Solar and Sustainability Conference will take participants on guided residential and business tours that currently use green technology. The tours intend to provide information on how much money can be saved through green technology but most importantly, how much it helps the environment. The morning tour will focus on residential solar systems, while the afternoon tour will concentrate on public facilities such as CSULB, Mark Twain Library, the Aquarium of the Pacific and the Long Beach Airport.
