From Crises to Solutions: Drinking Water in the 21st Century
Sunday, January 12, 2020

As a result of population growth, climate change, and pollution, the world’s drinking water supplies are under considerable stress. Over the past four decades, engineers and scientists working in water-stressed cities have created an array of new technologies that make it possible to purify water that would otherwise be unsafe to drink. However, the high cost and inflexibility of these systems currently prevents their use in all but the wealthiest cities. To expand access of these technologies to overcome the drinking water crises facing humanity, creative new policies and additional technological improvements will be needed. This talk will provide insight into the challenge of providing safe, affordable, and reliable drinking water in the coming decades.
