The End of Water As We Know It

PLUS:
Distinguished Service Award for Amber Arzadon
50-,60-year Member Recognition

ABSTRACT

We are witnessing the end of the golden age of water. Freshwater was once abundant, cheap, and safe for humans, but that is changing rapidly. Couple that with the fact that over the next 35 years, the world’s demand for water will rise by 55 percent, and it’s no wonder that water technology and management figure to shape the 21st century much like oil conflicts influenced the 20th century. So how can we reshape a better future for water? In his talk, Dr. Seth Darling will discuss how we got to this point, what lies ahead, and what can be done now to respond and adapt.
