Water Sustainability Forum: Can We Innovate Our Way Out of Drought?
Friday, September 29
11 a.m. to 12noon
The Klamath, Pier 9, the Embarcadero, San Francisco
More frequent. More severe. Drought and California are now practically synonymous. But California is also synonymous with innovation and technology, which companies are increasingly leveraging to conserve and reduce their water use and even create new water. To learn if we’re doing enough, fast enough and to better understand what it will take to manage our future water use, the Bay Area Council is pleased to convene top experts in the field of water sustainability for a discussion about the technological progress we’re making, what challenges and obstacles are getting in our way and what more we need to do to make the most of this precious resource.
